Grilled Scallops With Chili Dipping Sauce

Serves: 4
Total Calories: 242


1 medium carrot
2 teaspoons soy sauce
1 teaspoon hot garlic chili sauce (sriracha)
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1 tablespoon rice vinegar
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon finely chopped fresh mint

1 1/4 pounds large sea scallops (20 scallops)
extra-virgin olive oil
kosher salt
freshly ground black pepper


TO MAKE THE SAUCE: Cut the carrot into 1/4-inch slices. Place in a small saucepan along with 1 cup water, the soy sauce, sriracha, and cumin. Bring the mixture to a boil. Lower the heat to a simmer and cook until the carrots are just tender, about 15 minutes. Purée the mixture in a food processor, adding the vinegar, olive oil, and mint as the motor is running. The sauce should have the consistency of ketchup. If the sauce seems too thick, add a bit of water. If it seems too thin, simmer the sauce for a few more minutes to reduce it. Set aside.

Wash the scallops and remove the small, tough side muscle (see REFERANCE & APPENDIX, _Sage Advice About Grilling Scallops). Place in a medium bowl. Add enough olive oil to lightly coat. Season with salt and pepper.

Place the scallops on the grate 1 to 2 inches apart. Grill over Direct High heat until just opaque in the center, 4 to 6 minutes, turning once halfway through grilling time. Remove from the grill and serve warm with the sauce drizzled on top or serve the sauce in small, individual dipping bowls.
