Ready for a 15 minute dinner? This was so quick I couldn’t believe it. If you want to make a full meal, just serve over rice. In fact, by the time your rice is ready, the rest of this tasty dinner will be too. Dripping with the goodness of ginger and garlic the miso glaze adds the perfect amount of sauce to golden scallops.
- 1 tbsp yellow miso
- 1 tbsp seasoned rice vinegar
- 1 tbsp mirin (sweet Japanese rice wine)
- 1/2 tsp fresh grated ginger
- 1/2 tsp fresh grated garlic
- 1/2 tsp toasted sesame oil
- 2 baby bok chow, quartered lengthwise
- 10 large sea scallops, patted dry (make sure to remove the side muscle)
- thinly sliced green onions
- toasted sesame seeds
Whisk first 4 ingredients and 1 tbsp water in a small bowl to blend. Set sauce aside.
Heat 1 tsp vegetable oil, and sesame oil in nonstick skillet over med-high heat. Add bok choy and cook until just wilted and browned lightly in spots, turning often. Remove bok choy to serving platter.
To the same skillet, add a bit more of both oils. Season scallops with salt and pepper and add to skillet. Sear scallops until brown and just opaque in center, about 1 1/2 minutes per side. Pay attention, there is nothing sadder than an overcooked scallop. :o(
Remove pan from heat and nestle the scallops in with the bok choy.
Add miso sauce to skillet, stir just until warm, about 3-5 seconds. If it seems too thick add a bit more water.
Drizzle sauce over scallops and bok choy. Sprinkle with green onions and sesame seeds.
I think it took about as long to type this as to cook it ……
