Marcela Valladolid tosses scallops in a spicy, vibrant combination of garlic, lime, soy and crushed red pepper before quickly grilling them.

  1. 1 pound large sea scallops
  2. Kosher salt
  3. Pepper
  4. 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for oiling the grates
  5. 1/4 cup chopped cilantro

  7. 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  8. 1 1/2 teaspoons low-sodium soy sauce
  9. 1 1/2 teaspoons crushed red pepper
  10. Tortilla chips, chopped avocado and lime wedges, for serving
  1. Light a grill. In a medium bowl, season the scallops with salt and pepper. Add the olive oil and cilantro along with the garlic, lime juice, soy sauce and crushed red pepper and toss to coat.
