Jumbo Grilled Sea Scallops Recipe

Sea scallops are delicious. A lot of people who do not live near coastal areas have not tasted this delicious seafood and if that sounds like you, you have missed out! Buy some scallops – they are easy to cook and they have a wonderful flavor. Dry day boat scallops are particularly good in this grilled sea scallops recipe but if you cannot get those, any scallops will do. Dry day boat scallops are sold the day they are caught, rather than preserved, which is why they have a fresher, cleaner flavor, but there isn’t that much difference between those and other scallops so just use whatever is available where you live.

You can serve this recipe with a green salad and warm baguette to soak up the tapenade and dressing if you like. If you are out to impress, serve freshly baked warm bread with this recipe. You can get half-baked bread, which you finish off yourself in the oven and that would make a great accompaniment. As you can imagine it smells wonderful while it bakes too. Because this bread is vacuum packed it keeps for a very long time before cook it, which is handy.

The combination of the red and green sauces are visually appealing and tastes great. The colors really do give this recipe a real gourmet finish and if you want to impress someone without having to make a very difficult recipe, this grilled sea scallops recipe is the ideal way to do just that. Scallops are an exotic ingredient and using the right flavors with them means your dish cannot fail to make a great impression.
