Ingredients

Cracked Wheat Salad:
Roasted Red Pepper Tahini Vinaigrette:

Directions

Watch how to make this recipe.

Special equipment: 8 long wooden skewers soaked in water for at least 1 hour

Preheat a charcoal grill to high heat using the direct heat method.

Thread 2 skewers through 3 scallops sideways so the scallops lie flat. Make 4 sets. Brush the scallops with oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Grill the scallops on both sides until slightly charred and just cooked through, about 1 1/2 minutes per side. Serve with Cracked Wheat Salad, Roasted Red Pepper Tahini Vinaigrette and grilled lemons.

Cracked Wheat Salad:

Bring 2 cups salted water to a boil, add the cracked wheat, cover and cook until the wheat is tender and the water is absorbed, about 30 minutes. Remove from the heat and let sit, covered, for 5 minutes, then fluff with a fork.

Transfer the cracked wheat to a bowl. Add the dill, parsley, mint, cucumber, tomatoes, lemon juice and drizzle with olive oil. Season with salt and pepper and toss to combine.

Roasted Red Pepper Tahini Vinaigrette:

Steep the saffron in hot water for 5 minutes to bloom. Transfer the saffron to a blender and add the tahini, vinegar, 1 tablespoon harissa, honey, garlic, red peppers, lemon juice, and season with salt and pepper. Blend until smooth. Taste, and add more harissa if desired.

With the motor running, slowly drizzle in the oils and blend until emulsified. The vinaigrette can be made up to 4 hours in advance, covered and kept refrigerated. Bring to room temperature before serving.
