Recipe: Broiled scallops with sweet lime sauce

Recipe: Broiled scallops with sweet lime sauce

Broiled scallops with sweet lime sauce — one of many healthy recipes from Mayo Clinic.

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


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.


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
