#10DaysofTailgate - El Diablo Mango Mustard Glazed Grilled Scallops

 



This recipe uses two of the fantastic products I was sent from our #10DaysofTailgate sponsors - a FireWire flexible grilling skewer (which is absolutely genius) and some of the Mango flavored El Diablo mustard (seriously my favorite!) The FireWire is amazing. I love that you can load it up with your meat and / or veggies, place it in tupperware to marinate, then just pick it up by the end and lay it straight onto your prepped grill. SUPER easy to work with!

El Diablo's slogan is "The Mustard That Bites Back" - this stuff packs some heat along with the delicious flavors. I have used a few of their mustards now, in various recipes, and have not been disappointed. Great flavor profiles, and super easy to work with. These are really great condiments, and there is no end to the ways you can use them!

This recipe is so good. I have actually never eaten nor cooked a scallop before - and I am so glad I finally remedied that oversight. I love the texture and consistency of these, and the mustard glaze compliments the lightly flavored scallop beautifully. The grill added some smokiness as well and I thought it all worked together perfectly! You could serve these as an appetizer, or alongside some rice or pasta for a dinner. You can't go wrong with this dish.

  3. Scallops on the grill? Oh, yes please. The FireWire is such a practical solution to turning all of the scallops at once - brilliant.

  4. I was just eyeing some scallops at the fish market but ended up with gulf shrimp instead. There's always next weekend, right? (I really thought that first picture on the grill was marshmallows! That might be a good use for the firewires, too. LOL)
