Healthy Fact of the Day

Scallops are a low-calorie, high-protein seafood option that's rich in omega-3 fatty acids and essential minerals. Paired with a flavorful ginger soy sauce, this dish is a delightful and light choice for a delicious meal.



For the Scallops:

  • 1 lb fresh scallops, patted dry
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil


For the Ginger Soy Sauce:

  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon mirin (Japanese sweet rice wine)
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 tablespoon fresh ginger, grated
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon green onions, finely chopped (for garnish)
  • Sesame seeds (for garnish)



  1. Season the scallops with salt and black pepper.

  2. In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium-high heat.

  3. Add the scallops to the skillet, making sure not to overcrowd the pan. Cook for 2-3 minutes per side or until they are golden brown and opaque in the center. Remove from the skillet and set aside.

  4. In a small bowl, whisk together soy sauce, rice vinegar, mirin, honey, grated ginger, minced garlic, and sesame oil to create the ginger soy sauce.

  5. Pour the ginger soy sauce into the skillet used for the scallops. Bring it to a simmer, scraping any flavorful bits from the pan.

  6. Add the cooked scallops back to the skillet, coating them in the ginger soy sauce. Cook for an additional 1-2 minutes.

  7. Remove from heat and transfer the scallops to a serving plate.

  8. Garnish with chopped green onions and sesame seeds.

  9. Serve the Scallops with Ginger Soy Sauce over steamed rice or your choice of noodles.
