    Pigasso,
    Rinse and dry the scallops.
    Dust with Dizzy Pig Jamaican Firewalk or your favorite seasoning and sear quickly at high temps like a steak. We are talking only a minute on each side at best.
    Have everything else ready to go and enjoy the meal.[p]Hope this helps,
    RhumAndJerk[p]

    Pigasso,
    this is good but you have to reduce the sauce more than half its volume. the scallops add liquid when cooked.[p]

    RhumAndJerk, - thanks for the recipe. Would you use a grill basket or place the scallops directly on the grill?

  • PigassoPigasso Posts: 111
    fishlessman, thanks! I don't have all the ingredients on hand, so I will keep this on file for the next time. Thanks again![p]Oink

    Pigasso,
    A grill basket will work well, but the non-stick ones don't do well with the super high heat...and I like a screamin hot fire. My favorite way to grill them is to use skewers. Soaked bamboo skewers work well, but the scallops tend to spin...so I use flat metal skewers.[p]A good pan sauce might include sherry, soy, ginger....or a ginger, lime, cream kinda thing. Don't have any recipes handy, as I usually wing it.[p]Happy cookin!

    Nature Boy,[p]I pierce with two-bamboo skewers to keep the spinning from happening. The only spinning I want to see is the Dizzy Pig Spin! Raging River Scallops are incredible![p]Beers to you,

    Nature Boy,
    my scallop skewers are simply a peice of stainless tig wire bent in the middle back on itself so that 2 wires stick though each scollop. easy to load

    Nature Boy,
    I actually have two prong metal skewers that I use all of the time for shrimp.

    QBabe, Try presoaking the whole bundle of skewers, then freezing them on a tray so they separate. Bag them and you are ready to go without having to soak em each time. Plus the frozen ones stay cool longer.

  • QBabe,[p]RR are my favorites also. Thanks for the tip on 2 skewers. DOH, that should have been eaiser to figure out.[p]CWM
  • Pigasso, lime juice, honey, raging river, chipotle powder to taste. MArinade 30-60 min. Wrap each with 1/2 strip bacon. Cook med. hot and fast.[p]CB

  • Pigasso, who wouldn't want to serve the famous Seafood Newburg off the BGE...I had scallops not long ago and just added some nice shrimp to go along with them and on a raised grid added another grid on top of that one turned 90 degree from the first one making it impossible for the scallops and shrimp to fall through and oiled & dusted them and grilled, let cool a bit and chopped, then followed this recipe. I did em in oval ramkins (which also went in the egg) and didn't think they needed much to go with except a salad and hard rolls.[p]Seafood Newburg
    · 1 pound frozen shrimp, cooked and coarsely chopped
    · 4 to 8 ounces crab or lobster, thawed, drained, and diced
    · 2 tablespoons sherry
    · 2 teaspoons lemon juice
    · 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
    · 3/4 stick butter, 6 tablespoons
    · 1/3 cup flour
    · 2 cups half and half
    · 1/2 teaspoon salt, or to taste
    · 1/4 cup heavy cream
    · 1 egg yolk
    · 1/2 cup grated Cheddar cheese
    Mix the seafood with sherry, lemon juice, and nutmeg. Cover and refrigerate for a few hours. Melt butter in a saucepan over low heat; blend in flour then stir in the half-and-half. Add salt and continue cooking and stirring until thickened, about 15 to 20 minutes. Combine beaten egg yolk with the heavy cream.[p]Add to the sauce, stirring constantly. Add cheese. Continue to cook, stirring, until well blended and cheese is melted. Add the seafood with its marinade. Heat thoroughly, about 10 minutes longer. Serve over patty shells, rice, or toast points. If too thick, thin with a little milk.
    Seafood Newburg recipe serves 4 to 6.[p]

  • Pigasso,
    Dizzy Pig's Tsunami Spin Rub is great on scallops. I also recommend the Grill Topper (expanded aluminum mesh)to to cook them on so they don't fall through the grid. Wal-Mart has them in their grill dept. for .94 cents. They are disposable-you can get about 5-10 cooks out of them depending how careful you are when cleaning it between uses.
