What’s For Dinner? Soy-Glazed Scallops!

Why We Love It

This light, fresh meal can be prepared in minutes. It’s easy enough for a weeknight supper and fancy enough for weekend entertaining.

Ingredients

  • ¼ cup lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons canola or olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons gluten-free soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • ½ teaspoon fresh ground ginger (you can also use dried)
  • About 12 large scallops (about one and a half pounds)
  • One pepper (any color), onion, or other vegetable (or use a combination of veggies)
  • Four wooden or metal skewers

Method

  1. Preheat barbeque to medium.
  2. If using wooden skewers, soak them in a bowl of water.
  3. In a small bowl, combine lemon juice, oil, soy sauce, honey, garlic, and ginger. Put half the marinade into a plastic container, add the scallops, and mix together. Refrigerate for at least 20 minutes.
  4. Place the other half of the marinade into a small saucepan. Bring to a boil. Then, reduce heat and allow it to simmer for about 10 minutes, until slightly thickened. Remove from heat and set aside.
  5. Chop vegetables into chunks.
  6. After scallops have finished marinating, thread scallops and vegetables alternately onto skewers.
  7. Barbeque skewers for about three minutes per side, basting with boiled marinade.

Tips

  • Marinate the scallops as you’re heating up the grill.
  • You can also broil the scallops for the same amount of time.
  • Serve the skewers with a side of steamed rice to create a complete meal.
