Scallops in Orange Sauce

I made these the other day. Good flavor, I’m just a little afraid of scallops–never positive they’re done.

Scallops in Orange Sauce

Makes: 4 servings

3 Tbsp. light soy sauce
2 cloves garlic, minced
1-1/2 lbs. sea scallops
2 Tbsp. vegetable oil
1/4 cup orange marmalade
1/4 cup orange juice
3 Tbsp. hoisin sauce
1/4 tsp. red pepper flakes
2 scallions, trimmed and sliced thin

Mix together soy sauce and garlic in large resealable plastic food storage bag.
Add scallops and marinate for 15 minutes at room temperature. Pat scallops dry and reserve marinade.
Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet. Saute scallops for 2 minutes per side. Remove to a plate.
Mix together marinade, orange marmalade, orange juice, hoisin sauce and red pepper flakes. Pour into skillet and simmer on medium for 4-5 minutes until thickened. Add scallops and scallions and heat through.
