Simple Grilled Scallops

by Berkeley Wellness  

Serve these simple grilled scallops as is, or dress them up by serving one of these sauces or salsas on the side: Papaya-Corn Salsa, Salsa Verde, or Chimichurri Sauce.


  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon rosemary, minced
  • 1 pound sea scallops


  1. Spray a grill topper (or stovetop grill pan) with nonstick cooking spray. Preheat the grill (or grill pan), over medium heat.
  2. In a large bowl, stir together the oil, sea salt, and rosemary. Blot the scallops dry if they are weeping any liquid and transfer them to the bowl. Toss with the oil mixture.
  3. Place the scallops on the grill topper (or grill pan) and cook, turning the scallops once, until just opaque, about 3 minutes.
