Grilled Wild Scallops #GourmetGrillware #Giveaway

Father’s Day is coming up very soon and we want to celebrate dad in a big way on our site. Ken is a big part of our blog here, contributing lots of wonderful recipes. So when I was approached by Gourmet Grillware to do a giveaway I jumped at the chance.

Grilled Wild Scallops with Avocado Puree by Noshing With The Nolands

Ken received an early Father’s Day gift with this beautiful grill pan for his new BBQ. He was excited to try it out so I went to the grill master Bobby Flay to see if he could help me out with a delicious recipe. I adapted this one that I am showing you today into something very simple and fresh that is easy to whip up and if dad is a seafood lover, you will be getting big hugs from him, in making his day just that much better.

Gourmet Grillware products can not be put in the dishwasher, but with a light coating of oil before use, they cleaned up like a dream. I don’t put things like this in my dishwasher anyway so that is not a big deal. They are also not microwave safe but you wouldn’t be able to fit this in your microwave anyway.

What is lovely is that many of their pieces can go right from the BBQ to the table. Their dishes are beautiful, and never need polishing!!

Scallops are a treat here, something that I have grown to like but have been Ken’s favorite for a long time. These were so tender and delicious and paired so lovely with the citrus avocado puree.

Using this grill pan was a real joy. You can’t do scallops this size on the BBQ without the fear of losing so many through the grill or that they cook unevenly as they don’t lie flat. The square griller gives uniform heat and it is easy to maneuver with the handle.

    Somehow all of our grilling accessories disappeared in our move, so this is PERFECT timing. This package looks amazing – I’d be thrilled with ANY of it :-) And your scallops look gorgeous!!
