“A recipe from Howard Onik of the Mariner Motor Lodge, West Yarmouth”
This recipe serves 4-6 people
1 1/2 pounds large dry sea scallops , 10 to 20 per pound, small side muscles removed
8 – 12-inch metal skewers
2 tablespoons vegetable oil , plus extra for cooking grate
1 tablespoon unbleached all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon cornstarch
1 teaspoon sugar
Kosher salt and ground black pepperLemon wedges , for serving
To get the grill really hot, cover with aluminum foil for fifteen minutes, then lightly coat grill with paper towel dipped in cooking oil. Pat your scallops dry. Double skewer the scallops and cover with paper towels.
While grill is heating, whisk oil, flour, cornstarch, and sugar together in small bowl. Remove towels from scallops. Brush both sides of skewered scallops with oil mixture and season with salt and pepper. Place skewered scallops directly over hot grate. Cook scallops with lid down over high heat without moving scallops until lightly browned, 2½ to 4 minutes. Carefully flip skewers and continue to cook until second side is browned, sides of scallops are firm, and centers are opaque, 2 to 4 minutes longer. Serve immediately with lemon wedges.
