1 1/4 lbs. sea scallops, sliced in half horizontally and patted dry
1/2 cup fine dry bread crumbs
2 tsp. sesame seeds
1/2 tsp. ground ginger
1 large egg white

recipe directions
Preheat oven to 450*F. Lightly oil a wire rack large enough to hold scallops in a single layer over a baking sheet and set aside. In a small bowl, whisk together egg white, vegetable oil, sesame oil and soy sauce until creamy. In a shallow dish, stir together bread crumbs, sesame seeds and ginger. Add the scallops to the egg white mixture, tossing to coat well. Coat each scallop with the bread crumb mixture and place on prepared rack.

Its a wooden plank that is great for cooking fish or seafood on the grill!  You have to soak it for a few hours prior to using it, though...or you'll have a huge fire on your grill!

Cedar planks add a smoky flavor to your seafood.

Planked Scallops with Blueberry Tarragon Sauce


1 cedar plank
16 large scallops
2 T soy sauce (low sodium if you want)
2 T honey or pure maple syrup
1 T olive oil


2 large shallots, finely chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 cup FF chicken or vegetable broth
2 cups fresh blueberries
1 tsp cornstarch
1 T water
2 T chopped fresh Tarragon

#1.  Submerge plank in water for at least 3 hours. (it helps to pile cans on top to weigh it down).
Toss scallops with soy sauce, honey, and oil. When ready to cook, heat one side of the barbeque to high and the other to medium (if you have charcoal, do your best to arrange the coals so that one side is hot and the other medium).  
Place the plank on the medium-heat side (without the scallops!) and close the lid.  Heat for 5 minutes--this will release the aromatic steam.
Place scallops on the now hot plank and cook until firm to the touch, about 10 minutes.

#2.  For the sauce, place shallots, garlic, and 1/2 cup broth in a small sacuepan.  Boil until almost all liquid is absorbed.  
Stir in the blueberries and remaining 1/2 cup broth.  
Reduce heat and simmer until berries start to break down.
In a small bowl, dissolve cornstarch with water and stir into berry mixture.  Boil for 1 min, then remove from heat and stir in tarragon.

Dip scallops in berry sauce.

One serving consists of 4 scallops and 1/4 cup of sauce
