Grilled Scallops With Vegetables and Hoisin-Orange Sauce

READY IN: 1hr 21mins
Top Review by Maito

Probably my favorite scallop dish, really delicious. I made 2/3 of the scallops and 1/3 of the sauce for 2 people. The salad stands on its own too, though I did halve the sesame oil, fish sauce and onion for our taste. Thanks, Ashley!
