Honey Broiled Scallops

Submitted by: MOMMYBEARTO3

Introduction

A flavorful way to serve scallops. Great with saffron rice and a green veggie! The calories are probably a touch less than listed because you do not actually consume the marinade...only as much as sticks to the scallops. A flavorful way to serve scallops.

    I enjoyed this recipe but I think I will cook the scallops in a pan rather than in the oven. The broiler over cooked them and they were somewhat chewy. - 6/14/09

  • I added red pepper flakes & cayenne pepper. Turned out great - 8/24/10

  • I really liked it. I was afraid the soy sauce would overpower the lime, but it didn't at all. I liked the citrusy notes, but overall it was more subtle & the flavors blended with the silky scallops better than I thought! I didn't thread on a skewer, just broiled in pan, not too close to heat. - 6/9/10

  • They were ok. I followed the exact directions and the scallops came out cooked and moist but they had a wierd aftertaste (me and my husband thought so). The flavor wasn't very strong but they did smell sweet and didn't have a scallopy taste. Thanks for the recipe though :) - 6/9/10

  • I subbed a shot of tabasco for the ginger, it was a nice counterpoint to the honey. This was good and I am sure I will make it again. - 2/17/10

  • I don't really like scallops unless they're covered in butter and bacon, but I really liked the sauce. Would be awesome for someone who actually likes scallops more. - 9/16/09

  • Good, next time I will leave the lime out though, make it more of a terriyaki scallop ;) - 8/29/09

  • I used lemon juice instead of lime and grilled them. They were still very good. I will use this recipe again! - 8/9/09

  • I didn't have any ginger so I used cinnamon instead. It still turned out pretty tasty. I also boiled some of the marinade and used it as a sauce for some brown rice. - 7/12/09

  • My husband ate his and mine. I've tried but just cannot get into scallops. It must be the texture. Anyway, from the first bite my husband was like, "Wow!". - 1/22/09

  • I liked this low cal. dish very much. I used olive oil and added some garlic to the marinade. I cooked them on the grill and I served it with sweet potato's and mixed steamed veggies. Very nice! - 6/8/08

  • I LOVED the flavor in this! I had 1.5 lbs of scallops, but used the same amt of marinade, but then added some extra lime juice since Iwas really wanting a good lime flavor. It was absolutely fantastic! Quick and easy, too! - 6/8/08

  • I broiled the scallops a little long and the honey carmelized more that I it needed to. Other than that, they tasted great. - 4/26/08

  • This was very good and low cal -- personally, i might use a little less soy sauce - it was a tad salty for me. i also think next time i'll sub organic maple syrup and see how it comes out -- it's a great recipe w/room to experiment -- thanks SUZIBELL! - 4/12/08
