Grilled Scallop and Watermelon Mini Kebabs

A refreshing idea for either a summery main dish or entertaining appetizer, poached sea scallops (those are the larger type) are brushed with a flavorful Asian marinade and skewered with watermelon cubes then grilled in a flash to tasty perfection.

What You'll Need

  • 12 sea scallops
  • 4 cups boiling vegetable or chicken broth
  • 24 watermelon cubes, about 1 x 1-inch
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon fresh minced ginger

What to Do

  1. Cut scallops in half diagonally, creating half-moon shapes. Place in a casserole dish in a single layer.
     
  2. Pour boiling broth over scallops and let them poach for 5 minutes. Drain and cool the scallops.
     
  3. Alternatively skewer 2 half-moon scallops and 2 watermelon cubes using a scallop at the tip to hold each of 12 kebabs securely.
     
  4. Heat grill to medium. Mix together the soy sauce, sesame oil, garlic and ginger and brush the kebabs as they are grilled for about 90 seconds per side turning once. Serve warm.

Makes 12 skewers.
