Grilled Herb Scallops with Balsamic Syrup
Ingredients
  • 8  fresh or frozen sea scallops (about 1 pound total)
  • 1/4  cup  olive oil
  • 2  tablespoons  snipped fresh mint
  • 2  tablespoons  snipped fresh Italian (flat-leaf) parsley
  • 2  tablespoons  balsamic vinegar
  • 1  tablespoon  freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1  teaspoon  finely shredded lemon peel
  • 1  clove  garlic, minced
  • 1/2  cup  balsamic vinegar
  • 2  cups  baby arugula
Directions

1. Thaw scallops, if frozen. Rinse scallops; pat dry with paper towels. Place scallops in a resealable plastic bag set in a shallow dish. For marinade, in a small bowl stir together oil, mint, parsley, the 2 tablespoons vinegar, the cheese, lemon peel, and garlic. Pour marinade over scallops. Seal bag; turn to coat scallops. Marinate in the refrigerator for 2 to 4 hours, turning bag once or twice.

2. Drain scallops, discarding marinade. Thread each scallop onto a 6-inch skewer.*

3. For a charcoal or gas grill, grill scallops on the greased rack of a covered grill directly over medium-hot heat for 6 to 8 minutes or until scallops are opaque, turning once halfway through grilling time.

4. Meanwhile, in a small heavy saucepan bring the 1/2 cup vinegar to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, for 4 to 5 minutes or until vinegar is reduced by half.

5. Serve scallops with arugula. Drizzle with the reduced vinegar.
