Note from Ricardo

Large scallops are perfect for grilling. If you have medium-sized scallops, thread them onto a skewer to make them easier to handle.

We prefer to cook scallops primarily on one side until nicely caramelized, then finish them off quickly on the second side until just lightly cooked at the centre.
