Instead of covering scallops with a heavy sauce, this recipe calls for broiling them in honey and lime juice.

Ingredients

(Serves 4)
  • 4 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon olive or canola oil
  • 1 pound bay or sea scallops, rinsed and patted dry
  • 2 teaspoons grated lime peel
  • 1 lime, cut into 4 wedges

Directions

Heat the broiler. Position the rack 4 inches from the heat source. Cover a broiler pan or cookie sheet with aluminum foil. Spray generously with cooking spray.

In a large bowl, whisk together the honey, lime juice and oil. Add the scallops and toss gently to coat with the honey mixture. Arrange the scallops in a single layer on the prepared broiler pan or baking sheet.

Broil until opaque throughout when tested with the tip of a knife, about 5 minutes. Turn the scallops over and broil for another minute.

Divide the scallops onto 4 warmed plates. Pour any juices from the broiler pan or baking sheet over the scallops. Sprinkle with grated lime peel and serve with a lime wedge.
