  • 1 lb bay scallops
  • Skewers
  • 2 tbsp avocado oil
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper (omit for AIP)
  • 1/4 tsp fresh thyme
  • Juice from 1/4 lemon


  • Soak the skewers for at least 30 minutes in water to prevent them from burning on the grill.
  • Place scallops on skewers so the widest surface of the scallop lie face down on a dish. 1 lb scallops should yield about 4 skewers.
  • Whisk together avocado oil, salt, pepper, and thyme and pour over the scallops.
  • Marinate in the fridge for 30 minutes to 1 hour.
  • Preheat your grill to high.
  • Grill any vegetables you'll be serving before the scallops.
  • Place the scallops on the grill and cook for 2-3 minutes on each side, using a wide spatula to flip them.
  • They are done when they are opaque and lightly charred on both sides.
  • Take them off the grill, sprinkle with lemon juice, and serve immediately.
