Ingredients
Barbecue Rub

  • 1 Tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 Tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 ½ Tablespoons chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder

Skewers (soak in water prior to grilling)

  • 20 sea scallops
  • 2 oranges, peeled into segments
  • 1 onion sliced into chunks
  • Cooking spray

Garnish

  • 2 Tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro

Directions

  1. Pre-heat grill to medium-high heat.
  2. Place barbecue rub ingredients in large zip-top bag.  Add skewer ingredients (except cooking spray).  Toss well to coat and place on skewer, alternating between ingredients.
