Cedar Planked Scallops with Blistered Cherry Tomatoes

Serves 4

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 10 minutes

Succulent scallops, smoky cedar planks, and the intense heat from a wood-fired pizza oven – so mouthwatering! The ingredients are simple, but the intense flavors and textures knock this dish out of the park.


  • 16 sea scallops
  • 2 cedar grilling planks
  • 4 tbsp. olive oil, divided in half
  • 3 cups cherry tomatoes, freshly picked
  • Lemon infused olive oil, to drizzle over cooked tomatoes and scallops
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly cracked black pepper to season the scallops


Preheat the Bull pizza oven to 450°F - 500°F. Allow the fire to burn about 30 minutes until embers start to form.

Place the seasoned cast iron pan into the fire.

Be sure to use an oven mit to avoid burning your fingers. Allow the pan to get nice and hot until smoking, around 5 minutes.

In a bowl add the washed tomatoes and season with olive oil, salt and pepper. Using Bull’s pro perforated peel, carefully bring the hot skillet to the front of pizza oven and add the tomatoes. Let them sizzle for about a minute. Grab the handle and rotate the tomatoes in the pan, swirling around. The tomatoes will be done in about 4 minutes. Place onto a half sheet pan once finished and to avoid them from overcooking and becoming too mushy in the skillet.

Remove the planks from the water and pat dry. On a separate sheet pan, place the scallops and pat dry. Drizzle olive oil, salt and pepper to season. Place 8 scallops onto each cedar plank. Using the peel, carefully place the planks with the scallops on top in the opposite corner of the fire. Allow the scallops to cook for about 5 minutes (around 500°F) before rotating them and cooking for another 5 minutes (10 minutes total cooking time). Depending on how hot the fire is, the scallops may take longer to cook if the internal temperature of the pizza oven is not as hot (around 400°F).

Remove the planks from the fire and set onto the Bull stainless plank saver to present to your dinner guests.
