Korean Grilled Scallops

My travels to South Korea make me totally cool with my students!! They love K-pop and are blown away that I have actually visited Korea!!! The fact that I know about the food there also, just gives me extra kudos!! It’s a wonderful slick modern culture, and the food is just an awesome highlight of life in South Korea. It is drier than Chinese food, which tends to have more oil and a little saltier.

WINE NOTE: Fino sherry is a popular option with Korean flavor such as this, but Pinot Gris is a an excellent wine option for the soy /rice vinegar / sesame flavor.

12 Large scallops halved horizontally
1 Red pepper diced into 1″ / 2.5 cm pieces
1 Green pepper diced into 1″ / 2.5cm pieces
2 Garlic cloves minced
1 Scallion (spring onion) finely chopped
2 Tbsp Soy sauce
1 Tbsp Rice vinegar
1 Tbsp Sesame oil
1 pinch of chili powder

4-5 Wooden skewers soaked in water for 15-20 minutes

Salad leaves & lemon wedges to serve

Thread the scallops and peppers onto skewers, alternating them.

Place the skewers in a shallow dish. Blend the rest of the ingredients and pour over the scallops. Leave for 30 minutes, turning occasionally.

Place the skewers on a hot griddle plate, brushing with the marinade, turning occasionally cooking for 5-7 minutes.

Serve over the salad leaves with the lemon wedges.
