Piri Piri Scallops with Spinach-Pineapple Salad

Directions

  1. Thaw scallops, if frozen. Rinse scallops; pat dry with paper towels. Set aside. For piri piri sauce, in a food processor or blender combine lime juice, chili sauce, garlic, paprika, and salt. Cover and pulse with several on/off turns or blend until smooth. With processor or blender running, gradually add olive oil in a slow, steady stream through the opening in the lid; process or blend until oil is incorporated.
  2. Set aside 1/4 cup of the piri piri sauce. Place scallops in a resealable plastic bag set in a bowl; pour the remaining piri piri sauce over scallops. Seal bag; turn to coat scallops. Marinate in the refrigerator for 2 to 4 hours, turning bag occasionally.
  3. Drain scallops, discarding marinade. Thread four scallops on each of four skewers.*
  4. For a charcoal grill, grill skewers on the rack of an uncovered grill directly over medium-hot coals for 6 to 8 minutes or until scallops are opaque, turning once halfway through grilling. (For a gas grill, preheat grill. Reduce heat to medium-high. Place skewers on grill rack over heat. Cover and grill as above).
  5. Serve scallops with Spinach-Pineapple Salad and drizzle them with the reserved piri piri sauce.
