PointsPlus Grilled Scallop Cocktail Recipe


Try buying frozen sea scallops to cut down on costs when making this recipe. Thaw them overnight in the  refrigerator or quickly in a bowl of cool water in the refrigerator for about an hour. 


  • Cooking spray
  • 12 large sea scallops (about 1 pound)
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 cup ketchup
  • ¼ cup lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tablespoons jarred prepared white horseradish
  • Several dashes of hot pepper sauce, to taste


Off the heat, coat a grill grate with cooking spray. Prepare a charcoal grill for high-heat cooking or preheat a gas grill for high-heat cooking. Sprinkle scallops with salt and pepper. 

As the grill heats up, mix ketchup, lemone juice, Worcestershire sauce, horseradish, and hot pepper sauce in a bowl. 

Set scallops on the grill grate directly over heat and grill, covered, turning once, until opaque and firm, about 5 minutes. To serve, place a rounded 1/3 cup cocktail sauce on each plate; set 3 hot scallops on top.
