Honey Tips

Honey Is Magic

In the days before biology and botany were understood, people thought it was a special kind of magic that turned flower nectar into honey.


Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Saute scallops for 1 minute on each side, or until cooked through. Remove from pan with a slotted spoon, leaving juices in pan.
In the same skillet, cook the ginger and shallot over medium-low heat, stirring, until the shallot is softened. Stir in scallions, lemon juice, honey, salt and pepper. Return scallops to pan. Cook until just heated. Serve over rice.
