This is totally NOT the way I would cook sea scallops, but had a work friend recommend this recipe with HUGE props. I complicated it a bit, but it really WAS good. I downloaded the pics, but lost them somewhere in the morass of my laptop….. so this is an artless post….lol. This dish is cooked on the grill in foil – kind of like the old Boy Scout recipe for cooking on an open fire. So, here it is:
3 cloves garlic – minced
2 small summer squash – I spiailized mine – but sliced THIN will work
One lemon – zested, ( and put aside) and the juice separated
3 pc of bacon, cooked, and diced
3 slices of tomato – cubed to about 1/2 inch
|Garlic and onions in burnt butter|
1 tbs onion – minced
2 tbs butter
5 tbs white wine
Heat butter in sautee pan, Add onions, and garlic, and sautee till the butter turns slightly brown. Remove from heat, and set aside.
Make tin foil tray, and add burnt butter, garlic and onion mix. Add 5 tbs of wine – or more if you want – , scallops, then tomatoes, squash, salt and pepper to taste, and a couple tbs of butter Wrap all in tin foil, so it is air tight, and put on grill on med high – about 350 degrees. Steam for about 13 minutes, serve over rice, ladling sauce over rice. Killer dish – easy and good…..
Finally found the pics!
