Honey Glazed Sea Scallops with Mustard Hoisin Dipping Sauce

Sea scallops are a wonderful gift from our oceans - their flavour is so delicate and almost sweet. This is a great dish on its own or serve as an appetizer on little oriental spoons drizzled with the sauce.

Time: 10 mins
Effort: Easy
Serves 2

8-10 large sea scallops
1 tsp salt
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tbsp honey
1 tsp butter

Dipping Sauce
1/4 cup Hoisin sauce
1 tbsp Dijon Mustard

Lay sea scallops on several paper towels and pat dry. Sprinkle salt and garlic powder all over. Heat the butter in a medium skillet until almost smoking hot. Add half the scallops and quickly sear on all sides (they should be quite browned). Cook no longer than a couple of minutes or else they will be overcooked and rubbery ! Remove them onto a plate, and repeat with the rest of the scallops. Turn heat to medium and add honey to the remaining butter in the pan and quickly stir. Turn heat off, and return scallops to the pan, stirring quickly to ensure each one is coated with honey. Serve immediately with dipping sauce.

Sauce: Mix hoisin and Dijon mustard until well blended and creamy. Easy !
