These were good the flavor of the orange went nicely with the delicate flavor of the scallops.I added fresh ginger with the garlic.

Very Very tastey!! We love scallops and this was a nice different recipe to add to my scallop list. I used a nice fresh huge naval orange, both the juice and the zest. Scaled the recipe for 2 and doubled the garlic. We were surprized at how well the orange flavour went with the scallops. Will certainly make these again, thanks for sharing.

Delicious! I scaled down the recipe for two, added extra garlic and since I'm on a low-sodium diet didn't use the extra salt...the soy sauce was salty enough. My husband loved it. Definitely a keeper, a very easy, fast, tasty recipe. This is going in my Cookbook and will be made often. Thanks.
