Coconut-Crusted Scallops

My husband requested surf and turf so we took some scallops and steak out of the freezer. I knew we were trying out the broccoli with almond dressing from Primal Blueprint Quick and Easy Meals so I tried to infuse the same flavors throughout the meal. Here's my go at coconut shrimp. For a first try, it turned out quite well. We used a veggie grill topper to cook them on our gas grill but they could easily be sauteed in a skillet with a little coconut oil.

Serves 3.

9 large sea scallops
1/2 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp white pepper

  1. Rinse scallops and pat dry.
  2. Pulse coconut, salt, and pepper in food processor until finely ground.
  3. Dredge scallops in coconut mixture.
  4. Grill over medium-high heat for approximately 5 minutes on each side or cooked through.


  1. what kind of food processor do you use?
