Sesame Sauce Scallops Summer Recipe...

I love scallops, every time we go out for seafood I make sure to order them in my meal. This easy summer recipe had me at hello when I read that it only takes 6 minutes to cook! Who needs to go out when you can easily prepare a great seafood recipe like this one at home. Scallops would make a nice summer appetizer or a quick dinner if you are on your way out to an event.

Recipe Ingredients:

• 16 large sea scallops (about 1 3/4 pounds)

• 1 sliced green onion (white and green sections reserved separately)

• 2 garlic cloves, minced (about 1 teaspoon)

• 2 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce

• 1 tablespoon rice vinegar

• 3 teaspoons sugar

• 1/2 teaspoon cornstarch

• 1 tablespoon sesame oil

• 1/8 teaspoon crushed red pepper

• 1 teaspoon canola oil

• 1/8 teaspoon black pepper

Directions:

• "Remove scallops from the refrigerator, and bring them to room temperature (about 10 minutes). In a small mixing bowl, add the white onion pieces and the next 7 ingredients (through crushed red pepper); stir with a whisk to combine, and set aside."

• "Warm the canola oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. When hot, add the scallops; sprinkle scallops with the black pepper. Cook scallops about 3 minutes on 1 side until golden brown. Using tongs, flip the scallops and cook 2-3 more minutes or until browned. Transfer scallops to a plate, and cover with foil. Keep the skillet on the heat."

• "Whisk the sauce again, and add it to the pan. Cook until the sauce boils and thickens slightly (about 45 seconds); then remove the pan from heat. Divide scallops among 4 plates, drizzle some of the hot sesame sauce over each portion, and garnish with a sprinkle of green onion pieces."
