Fire up the grill and trim some fresh rosemary for this scallop dish from Bon Appétit.

Bon Appétit's epic new grilling tome, aptly named The Grilling Book, is a volume of unbelievable barbecue recipes you simply have to see for yourself. And until you do, we're publishing a few of the standouts, these rosemary scallop skewers included.

In this rustic dish, sturdy fresh rosemary sprigs serve as the skewers. First, trim the sprigs to roughly 6-inch lengths, then use a small knife to carefully whittle the thicker ends to a point. Thread the scallops onto the rosemary skewers. It’s easier than it sounds, and it will give you loads of flavor with only six ingredients.
