Grilled Scallops with Garlic Butter and Chillies Recipe

Scallops are a delicacy, one that has to be cooked with the right sort of flavours to enhance and not overpower its taste. Grilling scallops in its shell lends a smoky flavour which when combined with the garlicky butteriness and that hint of heat from the chillies creates magic on your taste buds.

Cooking time: 30Min
Serves: 4

#Ingredients: 1. 8 scallops; cleaned (with one shell each intact) 2. 1 large red chilli; sliced thinly (large ones have less heat) 3. 3 tbsp butter 4. 2 medium garlic; grated 5. 4 cherry tomatoes; halved 6. Salt, to season 7. Freshly milled black pepper; to season 8. 2 sprigs fresh coriander leaves; finely chopped 9. Lemon wedges, to serve #Method: • Add the butter and garlic to a pan and melt on the lowest heat possible. Keep aside for at least 30 minutes for the flavours to infuse through. Reheat if necessary before use. • Heat the grill to smoking hot. • Add a little garlic butter, 1-2 chillies, one half of a cherry tomato to each scallop nestled inside its shell. Season with salt and pepper; also add a few coriander leaves. • Place on the grill and cook covered for 1-2 minutes depending on the size of the scallop.
