Tarragon and lime scallops recipe


  • 24 Scallops, without roe (500g)
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh tarragon
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3 limes


1. Combine scallops in a medium bowl with tarragon, juice and oil, toss to coat scallops all over.
2. Cut each lime into eight wedges. Thread one scallop and one lime wedge on each skewer.
3. Cook in batches, on heated oil grill plate (or grill or barbeque) until scallops are cooked through.

Makes 24

Tip – Uncooked scallops and lime wedges can be skewered up to 4 hours ahead. Cover, refrigerate until required. You need 24 small bamboo skewers for this recipe; soak them in cold water for at least an hour prior to use to prevent splintering or scorching.

Just a word of caution with adding Tarragon to any meals as it has a unique flavour which is anise.  We’d recommend gentle hands when adding it.  Most people tend to hate it or love it.  Check with your dinner guests first before serving.  Want more amazing seafood recipes then click here.
