These are not your ordinary scallops: this drunken scallops recipe, paired with chili and garlic, was definitely invented in heaven… If you want to try something a bit different on your smoker, this is the recipe for you!


  • Scallops
  • White wine
  • 100 gr butter
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 chili pepper
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 1 tbsp fresh cracked pepper
  • Flat-leaved parsley

Grilled Drunken Scallops Recipe With Chili Garlic Butter

The first thing you want to make is the garlic butter. In a pan mix the butter, 1 tbsp olive oil, some chopped chili pepper (seeds included), two crushed cloves of garlic and 1 tbsp fresh cracked pepper. Stir and let the ingredients melt together, then set aside.

For this recipe, we are going to use the shells as our pan. Pour a dash of white wine into each scallop shell, then carefully place them directly on the charcoal (you might need protective gloves for that). The scallops should cook in about 6-8 minutes, depending on how hot your fire is. About halfway through the cook, flip the scallops inside the shells.

When the scallops have cooked, pour 1-2 tbsp of garlic butter into each shell, and top with finely chopped parsley.

Serve while hot, along with some bread to dip into the shells, or simply shoot them directly!
