Honey-Glazed Scallops

Pat Duran


Sweet honey, salt tamari, tangy rice wine vinegar and hot red pepper flakes,if desired, combine to make a delectable glaze for scallops. Try a robust honey in this recipe, such as buckwheat, eucalyptus or avocado to balance the strongly flavored tamari. Serve with wilted kale and brown rice.
When I saw this recipe I thought of those wonderful scallops that Carol in Boston had not so long ago from a friend and her wonderful recipe.MMmmm
