Grilled Veggies and Scallops

Wild Atlantic Scallops!

And free even because they overcharged by several bucks, Ev went back & they had to make it right (free!) – so she bought more (on sale)  &  we can have them again!

Ev gives the vegggie top billing, as she writes:

I had to give the veggies top billing because they were so delicious. Red, yellow and green peppers, onions, zucchini and mushrooms to be exact. Drizzled with olive oil and then sprinkled with Mrs. Dash’s Herb and Garlic seasoning, (and then a bit of garlic powder to make sure there was enough garlic), it all got grilled on the stove top on my Asian “grill” top, aka hubcap in 3 batches. The first batch of veggies went into the toaster oven to stay warm while I did the rest. Served over couscous. We kept saying, “Oh I just had a delicious red pepper. No, but I think the onions are the best. Mmm, that mushroom was so good.”

I’d say this was a perfect meal for 10/10/10. If I had to rate it, I’d give it all 10s.


She gives it all 10s – but me? I’d ding a point or two because yummy as it all was I only got three scallops!

Is that any way to treat a big eater?! She forgot to mention the salad, which had some of those teeny tomatoes & fresh herbs from the balcony garden. Ok, 10 all around!

Hubcap Scallops

First appearance of the Del Mar Fair magic hubcap cooking method in the blog! Wanted to make it French – “a la enjoliveur” but Ev said “hubcap” is weird enough. Maybe she will explain that unique cooking device sometime as she is the touch typist!

Ev: The hubcap is an Asian cooking utensil.  There is a ring that  you put liquid in and then a cover that looks like a hubcap!  You “broil” the food on the hubcap surface.  The food is amazingly good when cooked this way.  I rolled the scallops and zucchini in olive oil first, and sprinkled it with Mrs. Dash’s garlic and herb seasoning.  Couscous is always the best accompaniment to this light hubcap delight.
