  • 4 tablespoons honey 

  • 2 tablespoons lime juice  

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil or canola oil 

  • 1 pound bay or sea scallops, rinsed and patted dry

  • 2 teaspoons lime zest 

  • 1 lime, cut into 4 wedges



  • Preheat the broiler. Position the rack 4 inches from the heat source. Cover a broiler pan or cookie sheet with aluminum foil. Spray generously with cooking spray.

  • In a large bowl, whisk together the honey, lime juice, and oil. Add the scallops, and toss gently to coat with the honey mixture.

  • Arrange the scallops in a single layer on the prepared broiler pan or baking sheet. Broil until opaque throughout when tested with a tip of a knife, about 5 minutes. Turn the scallops over and broil for another minute.

  • Divide the scallops onto 4 warmed plates. Pour any juices from the broiler pan or baking sheet over the scallops. Sprinkle with grated lime peel and serve with a lime wedge.
