  • Brush scallops with oil, and sprinkle with salt and pepper.

  • Grill for approx. 30 seconds on each side.


  • Boil and cut potato into wedges.

  • Boil asparagus tender and cut in half.

  • Blanch tomato by cutting a cross on top, immerse in boiling water for a couple of minutes and then immediately place them into cold water. Remove the skin and seeds and finely chop the tomato.

Serve grilled scallops with salad.

Tip: Do not grill the scallops too long because that will make them dry and rubbery.
