Introduction

Rather than creating a fatty lime sauce, this modified recipe coats the scallops in honey and lime juice and gently broils them.
Rather than creating a fatty lime sauce, this modified recipe coats the scallops in honey and lime juice and gently broils them.

Number of Servings: 4

Ingredients

    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

Preheat 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 a 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.

    Oh my god... so good. I broiled some asparagus on the sheet with the scallops, and they came out perfectly cooked, too. Thank you! - 5/17/10
