The sweet honey, salty tamari, tangy vinegar and hot pepper flakes blend together to create a delectable glaze for the fresh sea scallops. It's great served with sliced avocado slices (to balance the strong flavor of the tamari) and brown rice served on the side.

Saute

Ingredients

1 1/2 Tbsp
tamari (or low-sodium soy sauce)
1 1/2 Tbsp
honey
1 Tbsp
dijon mustard
1/2 Tbsp
rice wine vinegar
1/4 tsp
red pepper flakes
1 lb
sea scallops, tough muscles removed
1 Tbsp
olive oil, divided
1/2 tsp
toasted sesame seeds

Step-By-Step

1In a small bowl, whisk together tamari, honey, mustard, vinegar and red pepper flakes; set aside.
2Pat scallops dry with paper towels. Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Cook scallops in a single layer, flipping once, until golden brown and just cooked through, about 2 minutes per side. (Work in batches, if necessary, adding the remaining 1 tablespoon oil when needed.) Transfer scallops to a large plate when done.
3Reduce heat to medium low and allow skillet to cool off a bit, then carefully add tamari-honey mixture to skillet and simmer briefly until reduced to a glaze. Return scallops to skillet and toss well to coat.
4Sprinkle with sesame seeds, and serve.
