Marinate scallops for about 30 minutes in a mixture of rice wine and fresh ginger then baste them in a sweet soy sauce mixture for an flavorful Asian-style grilled scallop entrée.

How to Make It

Step 1

Stir together rice wine and grated fresh ginger.

Step 2

Place scallops in a shallow dish or heavy-duty zip-top plastic bag. Add wine mixture; cover or seal, and chill 30 minutes, turning once.

Step 3

Soak 6 (12-inch) wooden skewers in warm water 30 minutes. Drain.

Step 4

Bring 1/4 cup brown sugar, ketchup, chicken broth, rice vinegar, soy sauce, cornstarch, sesame oil, minced garlic, and, if desired, red pepper to a boil in a saucepan over medium heat, stirring constantly. Boil 1 minute; remove from heat, and set aside.

Step 5

Remove scallops from marinade, discarding marinade. Thread scallops 1/2 inch apart onto skewers.

Step 6

Grill, covered with grill lid, over medium heat (300° to 350°) 2 to 3 minutes on each side.

Step 7

Brush scallops with brown sugar sauce, and serve immediately with remaining sauce. Serve scallops over hot cooked rice with chopped fresh parsley. Garnish, if desired.
