Grilled Scallops with Cilantro-Nectarine Salsa

Serves: Makes 4 servings

Ingredients:

  • 2 medium shallots, peeled and minced
  • 2 large ripe nectarines, pitted and finely diced
  • 1 small red bell pepper, finely diced
  • ½ jalapeño chile, minced
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 2 tablespoon minced cilantro
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon canola or vegetable oil for grill
  • 1 pound large sea scallops, abductor muscles removed
  • 2 lemons, cut into wedges


Procedures:

To create perfectly seared scallops every time, pat dry the scallops to remove any excessive moisture and have a hot skillet or grill surface oiled and ready. Season scallops and place on grill; do not touch them until dark grill marks develop and the scallops naturally release from the grill.

To prepare salsa: Transfer the minced shallot in to a fine-mesh strainer and rinse under running water to remove any sharpness. Drain well, transfer to a medium bowl, and add nectarines, bell pepper, jalapeño, lime juice, and cilantro. Taste and adjust seasoning with salt and pepper and set aside.

To cook scallops: Prepare a medium-high charcoal fire, preheat a gas grill to medium-high, or heat a large grill pan over medium-high heat. Brush the pan with a thin coating of oil using a silicone pastry brush.

Pat scallops dry and season with salt and pepper; place scallops on the grill and cook without turning until seared and they easily release from the grill, 2 to 3 minutes. Turn over and finish cooking, 1 to 2 minutes more.

To serve: Divide the cooked scallops between 4 warmed plates. Spoon the cilantro-nectarine salsa over the top of the scallops, place lemon wedges on the side and serve immediately.
