A simple honey-mustard dressing seasons both the squash and scallops in this quick-and-easy grilled recipe, ready in just 25 minutes.
Thaw scallops, if frozen. Rinse scallops and pat dry with paper towels.
In a small bowl combine olive oil, mustard, honey, snipped parsley, garlic and black pepper. Brush the squash and zucchini planks with half of the olive oil mixture. Brush scallops with remaining half of the mixture.
For a charcoal grill, place scallops and vegetables on the greased grill rack directly over medium-hot coals. Grill, uncovered, for 4 to 6 minutes or until scallops turn opaque and vegetables are crisp-tender, turning occasionally to cook evenly. (For a gas grill, preheat grill. Reduce heat to medium-high. Place scallops and vegetables on greased grill rack directly over heat. Cover and grill as above.)
Divide scallops among four serving plates. Cut up grilled squash planks and divide into four servings. Sprinkle the scallops and vegetables with additional fresh parsley and serve with lemon wedges.
Serve with Italian White Bean Salad.
