Broiled scallops with sweet lime sauce

 

Broiled scallops with sweet lime sauce
Dietitian’s tip:
Instead of covering the scallops with heavy sauce, this recipe calls for broiling them in honey and lime juice.
Serves 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
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.
