Total TimePrep: 20 min. + marinating Grill: 10 min.
- 2 tablespoons orange juice
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 teaspoon Caribbean jerk seasoning
- 1 teaspoon grated orange zest
- 1/8 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
- 1-1/2 pounds sea scallops (about 16)
- 2 medium zucchini
- In a small bowl, combine the orange juice, oil, seasoning, orange zest and red pepper flakes; set aside 1 tablespoon for basting. Pour the remaining marinade into a large bowl. Add the scallops; turn to coat. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
- Using a vegetable peeler or metal cheese slicer, cut zucchini into very thin lengthwise strips. Drain and discard marinade. Wrap a zucchini strip around each scallop. Secure by threading where the zucchini ends overlap onto metal or soaked wooden skewers.
- On a lightly oiled grill rack, grill seafood, covered, over medium heat or broil 4 in. from the heat for 3-4 minutes on each side or until scallops are opaque, brushing once with reserved marinade.
