I don’t have a video for this recipe.
If I had a photo, I would most certainly use it. That is... unless the photo I have sucks. For now, you'll just have to picture a big heaping helping of
Grilled Hoisin Scallops
...in your mind.

Grilled Hoisin Scallops

Makes a dozen - Hoisin sauce is easily found in the Asian food aisle along with the bottled chili paste.


  • 12 large sea scallops, defrosted
  • 24 bamboo sticks
  • Oil (doesn’t really matter what kind)
  • Kosher salt
  • 1/3 cup Hoisin sauce
  • 1-2 teaspoons chili sauce
  • Sesame seeds


  1. Preheat grill to medium high
  2. Skewer scallops with 2 sticks in each - it makes life easier
  3. Lightly coat skewered scallops with oil, then season with the salt
  4. Combine hoisin and chili sauce, mix well and set aside
  5. Grill scallops until good grill marks develop, 2-3 minutes, flip
  6. Now brush sauce on the marked side
  7. Cook until 2nd side is done, brush both sides well with sauce and give a little sprinkle of seeds
  8. Serve
