Ingredients (for 2 people)
1 lb scallops (about 20 scallops)
3-4 garlic cloves peeled
1 teaspoon Spanish smoked paprika
1/2 teaspoon whole grain Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons lime juice
1/2 teaspoon brown sugar
1. Gently wash scallops in cold water and pat them with paper towels. Prepare the sauce while heating the oven on the broil setting. Finely chop the garlic and put it into a small ramekin/dish. Add mustard, lime juice, olive oil, brown sugar, paprika (use smoked paprika for distinctive flavor), salt and pepper to taste and mix well.
2. Arrange scallops on the grilling sheet or baking dish. It’s better to use the grilling sheet as scallops discard lots of water which could make them mushy. If you are using grilling pan/sheet, you will avoid soaking them in water.
3. Spread the sauce on each scallop and broil for 5-7 minutes. Serve with finely chopped fresh parsley and lime wedges.
