Lemon Pepper Grilled Scallops

For this beautiful, sunny day, my husband and I took a trip to our local Farmer's Market and to our local grocery store to gather items for tonight's dinner. Nothing sounded better than a plate of grilled scallops and a light, refreshing salad...so that's exactly what we got! Along with these scallops, we had a dish new to us, Watermelon & Feta Salad.

Lemon Pepper Grilled Scallops

Ingredients
  • 1 lb. large fresh scallops
  • 2 tbs. olive oil
  • 1 tsp. Lemon Pepper seasoning
  • 1 tsp. fresh lemon zest
  • 1 tbs. fresh lemon juice
Directions

Pat scallops dry and place into a medium sized container. Pour olive oil and lemon juice over the scallops, then sprinkle with the Lemon Pepper seasoning, stirring to combine. Let sit and marinate in the refrigerator for 20-30 minutes until you are ready to grill.

While scallops are marinating, pre-heat grill to high, 15 minutes later, clean grates with a brush then wipe the grates with a paper towel dipped in vegetable oil (holding the paper towel with a pair of tongs).

After cleaning, place scallops directly on the grill, cover and let cook for 3-4 minutes on first side, then flip and continue cooking for about 3 minutes on the second side. Remove and enjoy!!!
