Ingredients

  • 2 cedar grilling planks

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons minced fresh basil
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh thyme
  • 1 teaspoon lime juice

Directions

Soak planks in water at least 1 hour. In a large bowl, whisk wine, oil, basil, thyme and lime juice. Add scallops; gently toss to coat. Let stand 15 minutes.
Place planks on grill rack over direct medium heat. Cover and heat 4-5 minutes or until light to medium smoke comes from the plank and the wood begins to crackle. (This indicates the plank is ready.) Turn plank over and place on indirect heat. Drain scallops, discarding marinade. Place scallops on plank. Grill, covered, over indirect medium heat 10-12 minutes or until firm and opaque.
