Skip the traditional hamburgers and hot dogs for a summer menu that is anything but ordinary. Inspired by our Mandarin Vetiver fragrance, this sophisticated Rosemary and Orange Scallop Kebab recipe has all the awe-factor without all the effort. Succulent scallops paired with citrusy oranges are ready in just 20 minutes, but leave lasting impressions on your guests long after the grill cools.

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup olive oil, plus more for the grill
  • 24 sea scallops (about 1 1/2 pounds), patted dry
  • 1 orange, cut into 16 wedges
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh rosemary
  • 1 tablespoon finely grated orange zest
  • kosher salt and black pepper

Instructions

  • Heat grill to medium-high. Once it is hot, clean the grill grate with a wire brush. Just before grilling, oil the grill gate. 
  • Soak 8 skewers in water for at least 15 minutes. 
  • Toss the scallops, orange wedges, oil, rosemary, orange zest, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper in a medium bowl. Thread onto the skewers. Grill, turning occasionally, until the scallops are cooked through, 3 to 5 minutes.
