I thought this was a lovely, delicious dish. The ingredients are things we have on-hand, making this recipe easy. I wish I had had a finer mesh to strain the sauce, but it was still yummy! I will make this one again.

Solidly great. I would like to add another half star. I used the cast iron pan and got it really hot before putting in the scallops. I also cut down the honey by half. After straining out the tea leaves and putting the sauce back into the pan, I threw the rice noodles in and gave them a toss in the sauce before putting the scallops back in. This will go into the seafood/fish rotation. Thanks.

My husband took one bite and announced that this was one of the best dinners I have made. Since I had no orange juice, I used pineapple juice. Next time, and there will be many next times, I want to try the orange juice to see the difference. The pineapple juice and the rest of the spices were very subtle.Good thing I had a new knee high stocking to strain the solids out of the sauce. VERY Yummy!
