Ingredients (2 servings)
  • 18 medium scallops, thawed if previously frozen
  • 1 zucchini
  • about 1 cup pineapple, chopped into 1" chunks
  • 2 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 1 tbsp low-sodium soy sauce or tamari
  • 1 tbsp lime juice
  • zest of 1/2 lime
  • a few pinches of dried chili flakes
  • In a resealable bag, combine all ingredients except scallops, zucchini and pineapple
  • Place the scallops in the bag, seal it, and allow them to marinate for 15 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, preheat the grill and slice the zucchini into rounds just under 1cm thick.
  • Once scallops have had time to marinate, dump them in a large bowl with all of the liquid in the bag, the zucchini, and the pineapple. Toss to coat.
  • One skewer at a time, alternate threading scallops, pineapple, and zucchini rounds. You'll have enough for 3 scallops per skewer, with each serving being 3 skewers.
  • Grill over medium heat for 2-3 minutes per side, or until scallops are completely white. Continue basting with marinade as the skewers cook.
  • Serve immediately, with lime wedges to garnish if desired.
