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.

How to Make Tamari and Honey-Glazed Scallops

Step-by-Step

  1. In a small bowl, whisk together tamari, honey, mustard, vinegar and red pepper flakes; set aside.
  2. Pat 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.
  3. Reduce 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.
  4. Sprinkle with sesame seeds, and serve.
