Spicy Sea Scallop Skewers with Mint Yoghurt Sauce #SundaySupper

Its the Labor Day Weekend and also the last weekend before school starts!September is here and very soon we’ll see the cooler crisp air in the mornings and evenings.Summer gradually making way for Fall.So while we still have some heat, lets just enjoy these last few days by having some barbecue fun with our favorite veggies,meats or seafood.For me it has to be Sea Scallops since I love them!Sea Scallops are one of the most nutritious seafoods out there and are packed with Vitamin B12,a necessary nutrient for cardiovascular health and Omega 3 Fatty acids.They are available fresh or frozen.You could use either for this recipe.Trader Joe’s sells these frozen Jumbo Sea Scallops that I’ve used here and they taste great.I just let them defrost before they’re ready to be used.

I like to have some spice, some heat on my seafood and that brings me to our recipe today.My Spicy Sea Scallops are of course spicy,but also fun to eat since I’ve got them on skewers.I’ve used the flat side of my griddle pan to get a nice sear on both sides, but you could also grill them directly on the grill for those lovely marks!

Spice Mix for Spicy Sea Scallops

The spice mix I’ve used here consists of Garam Masala,Cumin and Red Chili powder.The Sea Scallops are coated with the spice on one side before going into the skewers so as to not overpower the sweet delicate flavors and they taste absolutely delicious!I serve this with a cooling Mint Yoghurt Sauce that just balances the heat and also pairs nicely with all the flavors going on.

  1. These scallops are seared perfectly and they are just gorgeous! That rub sounds delicious, too!

  2. Trader Joe’s sells frozen scallops? And they’re tasty? I need to check this out! Scallops are definitely one of my favorite foods. I love how you completely crusted them in that lovely spice mix.

  9. Soni, you’ve got the most PERFECT sear on your scallops! Gorgeous! I’m totally intimidated by making them at home. Each time I’ve tried, they ended up super watery and would simply steam in the pan. Boo, hiss! I usually just order them when I go out and let the professionals handle it, lol. I need to learn your ways!
