    Ingredients and Preparation

    Ingredients Measures
    Lemon juice 2 tablespoons
    Olive oil 2 tablespoons
    Fresh chives, chopped 1 + 1 tablespoon
    Lemon zest 1 teaspoon
    Salt ¼ teaspoon
    Freshly ground pepper 1/8 teaspoon
    Sea scallops ¾ pound
    Cherry tomatoes 12
    Metal skewers (or wooden skewers soaked in water for at least 20 minutes) 4
    Directions
    1. Prepare grill or broiler.
    2. In a medium bowl, whisk together lemon juice, olive oil, 1 tablespoon of the chives, lemon zest, salt, and pepper. Add scallops and toss until thoroughly coated.
    3. Thread scallops and cherry tomatoes onto the skewers and brush thoroughly with the lemon-chive mixture.
    4. Place scallop kebabs on a lightly oiled grill rack or a nonstick broiler pan. Grill for 8-12 minutes, turning regularly, until opaque in center and lightly browned. If broiling, broil for 6-8 minutes, turning a few times, until opaque in center and lightly browned. It’s easy to overcook scallops, so keep a close eye on them to make sure they don’t burn.
    5. Garnish kebabs with remaining tablespoon of chopped chives.
