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.

    These look and sound amazing! I’ve always been a little hesitant to try scallops, but I’m completely inspired now!!! I’ll look for them at TJs, and can’t wait to try this delicious and healthy combination of flavors.

    I didn’t know that Sea Scallops are rich in vitamin B12 and I need more B12. Also I am shy towards scallops. lol I don’t really eat those things but I would be ready to try your spicy version Soni. Next time you come to India you can make me some, what do you think? =P
