Citrus Soy Scallops

1 clove garlic, minced
1 tbl grated fresh ginger
2 tbl sesame oil
3 tbl soy sauce
1/4 c. SF maple syrup
1 grapefruit, zest & juice only
1 tsp pepper
1 lb. scallops

In large bowl, combine garlic, ginger, oil, soy sauce, syrup, zest & juice, and pepper. Reserve 1/4 c. of the mixture and set aside. Put scallops in the bowl and turn to coat with the seasoning mixture. Let marinate 15 min.

Preheat broiler. Spray a broiler pan with cooking spray. Remove scallops from bowl with slotted spoon and place on broiler pan. Save the marinade. Broil scallops 3 minutes per side or until just cooked through. While the scallops are cooking, boil the marinade in a small saucepan until slightly thickened. Drizzle the cooked scallops with the boiled marinade.

Serve with Soba Noodle Salad if you and/or your family can eat noodles (see below).
