This is so good. I love grilled scallops and the vegetables and cilantro sauce bring this to another level.

We loved this. I used shrimp instead of scallops. I also added a clove of garlic and a tablespoon of lime juice to the cilantro sauce to give it a little more kick. The sauce tasted very much like the cilantro sauce that comes on my favorite dumplings at Chin Chin restaurant in Los Angeles, which I have been trying to replicate for years. So maybe I'll try the sauce on some pot stickers. Thank you!
