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.
