Honey-broiled scallops

Yield: 4 servings

Measure Ingredient
1 pounds Scallops; fresh or frozen
3 tablespoons Fresh Lime Juice
2 tablespoons Olive Oil
1 tablespoon Honey
1 tablespoon Soy Sauce
¼ teaspoon Ground Ginger
¼ cup Sesame Seeds; toasted

Today's recipe is particularly versatile in that the Scallops may be served as a main course with rice and a vegetable, or prepared on small wooden skewers and served as an appetizer.

Scallops are naturally a sweet-tasting seafood. You'll find that today's recipe simply accentuates a scallop's sweet essence. You'll also find that dinner is ready in 10 minutes, after an overnight marinade.

Thaw scallops if frozen, and rinse to remove any remaining shell particles.

Drain thoroughly.

In a 2-quart mixing bowl, combine lime juice, oil, honey, soy sauce, and ginger. Add scallops and mix until well coated. Cover and chill for 3 to 6 hours, stirring frequently.

Remove scallops from marinade, making sure to reserve the marinade. Thread scallops, evenly spaced, on 4 wood skewers. Broil 4 inches from heat source, turning occasionally and basting with reserved marinade. Broil for about 3 to 5 minutes or until opaque throughout.

Place toasted sesame seeds on wax paper and roll each skewer in the seeds to evenly coat scallops. Serve immediately.
