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.
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.
