Recipe for :

Light and Lemony Broiled Scallops

This recipe comes from Karen ( Ilyce is her alias ) who is in a recipe club with between twenty and thirty members, the oldest of whom is eighty-six and the youngest is thirteen, who collect recipes and love to cook.

Karen told me that she is "thirty-four years old, single and loves to cook, among other things. I've been cooking and collecting recipes since I was in my teens and have a very big collection. I collect from magazines, friends, newspapers, brochures, advertising material, and product recipes, the net, recipe groups and a list of other places. If I've taken the recipes from the web or from a magazines, there should be a source but sometimes, over the years, it wasn't collected".

This recipe has come from the simplyseafood group at Yahoo - click here to visit - or to visit / join Karen's own group where she posts some of her other recipes exclusively click here.


1 1/2 lb Sea scallops
3 tb Dry sherry
3 tb Teriyaki sauce
Juice and zest of one lemon
1 ts Cornstarch
1 tb Water

  • Combine the scallops, sherry, teriyaki sauce, juice and zest of lemon in a shallow dish.
  • Marinate at least 2 hours or overnight in the refrigerator.
  • Remove the scallops from the marinade, reserving the marinade, and broil 3 inches from heat for 3 minutes. Keep warm while you prepare the sauce.
  • Dissolve the cornstarch in water. Bring the reserved marinade to a boil and add the cornstarch in water. Return to a boil and boil for 1 minute. Pour over the scallops and serve over rice or serve as an appetizer with the sauce on the side for dipping.
