  • Reviews

  • “This was just ok not sure I would make again.I love sesame oil and garlic so thought it would be great but not really that great.”

  • “The sauce had a great flavour but did not complement the scallops.I wouldn’t make this again.”

  • “These are delicious!The sauce was so good, I am going to double it next time.Very quick and easy.I also used some olive oil with the sesame oil to keep it from burning.”

  • “Lovely dish…unfortunately the scallops used were defrosted and I replaced the lime with lemon instead…added in some brown onion with the garlic too which was nice. Very easy to make!”

  • “You can’t really use sesame oil as a cooking oil so I used olive oil for sauteeing the garlic and ginger, and I marinated the scallops in the lime and tamari and sesame oil for about a minute and then seared them. Thanks for sharing”
