Cooking Instructions

  1. 1

    To prep, cut 2 lb. of red potatoes into quarters, and place in a microwave safe bowl with water. Microwave for 15 minutes, stirring halfway through. Then, drain potatoes. In another large bowl, stir together 2 tsp. crushed rosemary, 1 tsp. garlic powder, and 2 tbsp. olive oil. Mix in drained potatoes and toss to coat. Cover and allow to marinate in the refrigerator for 1 hour. Remove from marinade and skewer potatoes.

  2. 2

    Lightly coat scallops and asparagus in olive oil, and sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste. Tip: Placing your scallops on a skewer makes them easier to flip when the time comes.

  3. 3

    Set your grill high heat.

  4. 4

    Place your skewered potatoes over high heat, and start a 20-minute timer.

  5. 5

    At 6 minutes, place your scallops over high heat. (If you haven’t flipped potatoes yet, do so now.)

Try not to spill on that cute pink table-cloth, alright? But do eat while it’s hot! We hope this timed recipe helped your night run smoothly, and we’d love to see your Valentine’s Day dinners on the #EveryonesInvited tag!
