Grilled Scallions with Lemon

6 large scallions, trimmed, leaving most of greens attached
1/4 teaspoon olive oil

1/8 teaspoon salt

a few twists of black pepper

1/2 lemon

Special equipment: 2 (8-inch) wooden skewers, soaked in water for 30 minutes


Toss scallions with oil, salt, and pepper in a large bowl. Line up scallions side by side on a work surface and thread skewers, 1 at a time, crosswise through all scallions to form a solid rectangle. (Skewers should be inserted about 2 inches from each end.) Grill on lightly oiled grill rack, uncovered, turning over once or twice, until softened and charred in patches, 4 to 5 minutes total. Transfer scallions to a platter and squeeze lemon evenly over them, then remove skewers.
