  1. Preheat the grill, setting the burners to high.
  2. In a bowl, combine the butter with the lime zest and juice. Season with pepper. Set aside.
  3. In another bowl, combine the rice and peas. Set aside.
  4. Spoon the rice mixture in the centre of the four sheets of aluminum foil and top with the scallops. Pour in the broth. Season with salt and pepper. Cover with lime butter pieces. Close to seal the papillotes.
  5. Cook for 15 to 20 minutes (depending if the rice is hot or cold) or until scallops are cooked to the desired doneness. 


For 4 cups (600 g) cooked rice, cook about 1 ½ cups (300 g) of rice in 3 cups (750 ml) water or broth.


  1. Easy and delicious! I added some chives and Thai fish sauce which didn't do any harm.
