  • Glaze:
  • 1/4 cup fresh lime juice
  • 1/4 cup fresh orange juice
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon grated peeled fresh ginger
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 1/2 cup chopped green onions
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped fresh cilantro
  • Salsa:

Preparation

  1. To prepare scallops, heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Combine first 3 ingredients in a bowl; toss well. Add scallops to pan; cook 2 minutes on each side or until browned. Remove from pan; keep warm.
  2. To prepare glaze, combine lime juice and the next 7 ingredients (lime juice through 1 garlic clove) in a small bowl; stir with a whisk. Add juice mixture to pan. Cook 7 minutes or until glaze becomes shiny and begins to thicken. Drizzle the citrus glaze over the scallops; add green onions and 1/4 cup cilantro. Toss well.
  3. To prepare salsa, combine chopped tomato and remaining ingredients except lettuce; toss well. Serve on Bibb lettuce leaves, if desired.
