Cook Time

Prep time: 20 min
Cook time: 10 min
Ready in: 30 min
Yields: 4 kabobs


  • 1 lb sea scallops
  • 2/3 cup mayonnaise
  • 3 Tbsp butter, melted
  • 1 Tbsp finely chopped onion
  • 2 tsp lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp dried dill, (or 1 1/2 tsp snipped fresh dill)
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1/8 tsp paprika


  1. Prepare the dill sauce in a small bowl by stirring together mayonnaise, onion, lemon juice, and dill. Cover the sauce, and set it in the refrigerator until your are ready to serve the scallop kabobs.
  2. If frozen, thaw the scallops.
  3. Rinse the scallops, then with paper towels pat them dry.
  4. Slice any really large scallops in half.
  5. Thread the scallops onto four 8 to 10 inch long skewers, leaving about 1/4 inch of space between each scallop.
  6. Preheat your broiler, and lay the scallop kabobs on a greased unheated broiler pan rack.
  7. Stir the melted butter, pepper, and paprika together in a small bowl. Brush half of the butter onto the scallops.
  8. Broil the kabobs (about 4 inches from heat) for 4 minutes. Turn them, brush with the remaining butter mixture, and continue broiling for another 4 to 6 minutes just until the scallops are opaque.
  9. Serve your broiled scallop kabobs with dill sauce.
