Marinated Broiled Scallops

Prep: 10 minutes plus marinating
Cook: 5-6 minutes
Yield: 4 servings

2 1/2 pounds sea scallops
1 teaspoon lemon pepper
5 tablespoons olive oil
3 tablespoons chopped fresh (or 1 1/2 tablespoons dried) rosemary
1/8 teaspoon dried red pepper flakes
In a bowl, place the scallops and sprinkle with pepper.
In another bowl, mix remaining ingredients. Pour mixture over scallops and toss. Cover and marinate at room temperature for one hour.
Heat broiler and place scallops on broiling pan. Broil for 2-3 minutes, turn and broil for another 2-3 minutes. Do not overcook. Serve hot.
Tips and Tricks
The scallops can be marinated overnight in the refrigerator. Remove and allow to stand at room temperature for 20 minutes before cooking. They can also be skewered and cooked on the grill.
How Kids Can Help
Mix marinade ingredients. Pour over scallops. Older kids can thread scallops on skewers.
