Thai-Spiced Scallops

Makes: 4 servings
Grill 15 mins to 20 mins Start to Finish 30 mins
Thai-Spiced Scallops
  • 1  pound  fresh or frozen sea scallops
  • 2  medium  yellow summer squash and/or zucchini, quartered lengthwise and sliced 1/2 inch thick
  • 1 1/2  cups  packaged peeled baby carrots
  •  Salt
  •  Freshly ground black pepper
  • 2/3  cup  purchased sweet-and-sour sauce
  • 2  tablespoons  snipped fresh basil
  • 1  teaspoon  Thai seasoning or five-spice powder
  • 1/2  teaspoon  purchased minced garlic

1. Thaw scallops, if frozen. Fold a 36x18-inch piece of heavy foil in half to make an 18-inch square. Place squash and carrots in center of foil. Sprinkle lightly with salt and pepper. Bring up 2 opposite edges of foil; seal with a double fold. Fold remaining edges to completely enclose vegetables, leaving space for steam to build.

2. Grill packets on the rack of an uncovered grill directly over medium heat for 15 to 20 minutes or until vegetables are crisp-tender, turning occasionally.

3. For sauce, stir together sweet-and-sour sauce, basil, Thai seasoning, and garlic in a bowl. Set aside 1/4 cup for basting. Reserve remaining sauce until ready to serve.

4. Thread scallops onto four 8- to 10-inch skewers, 1/8 inch apart. Place kabobs on grill rack next to vegetables the last 5 to 8 minutes of grilling or until scallops are opaque, turning and brushing once with basting sauce halfway through cooking. Pass remaining sauce. Makes 4 servings.
