“I love cooking on the barbecue outside, so this is the perfect dish to whip up at home after a day at the beach,” says Louis Tikaram.


Soy dressing


1.For soy dressing, combine ingredients with 1¼ tbsp water in a small saucepan and gently warm over low heat until sugar dissolves. Remove from heat.
2.Preheat a barbecue to medium or heat a char-grill pan over medium heat. Remove scallops from shells and brush inside shells with oil. Return scallops to shells. Grill scallops, shell-side down, until oil starts to spatter and scallops start to turn opaque (1-2 minutes). Working quickly, remove from the barbecue and flip scallops over in their shells to cook on the other side (don’t return them to the barbecue). Transfer to a serving plate.
3.Scatter spring onion, ginger and coriander over, dress generously with warm soy dressing and serve immediately.
