Grilled Scallops with Fresh Tomatoes and Basil

 Grilled Scallops with Fresh Tomatoes and Basil

Quick and easy delicious meals are a summer staple in our house. No clean up just heat up the grill. Grilling scallops brings out the sweet taste of the sea. All I do is marinate the scallops for a half an hour to enhance the flavor, pick fresh cherry tomatoes, add just snipped basil, so easy, so good. Toss up a salad with fresh farm produce serve along with a wonderfully fresh loaf of artisan bread for the best of summer dinning, so easy, so good. We enjoy dinning alfresco on our deck just relaxing enjoying our meal as the evening sounds fill our backyard with the lullaby of nighttime.


1 pound Sea Scallops

Juice from 1/2 lemon

2 cloves garlic, minced

1/4 teaspoon fresh pepper
