Cast Iron Scallops on the Grill

The best part about these cast iron scallops is that they can be cooked on your grill, oven, or stovetop. These succulent scallops are seared first then bathed in a buttery lemon-pepper sauce. Serve them as an appetizer or main course. Either way, it will be a fancy treat for you and your guests.
