Sweet Chili Shrimp & Scallops

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Stargazerlilly

This recipe comes from a little restaurant in my town that my husband and I LOVE! One of the employees entered this recipe in a contest and they published it in our newspaper...I couldn't believe it when I found the recipe for our favorite appetizer from our favorite restaurant! It is on the menu as an appetizer but when I prepare it at home I serve it with rice and it is a main dish.

Made a variation of this, the reason I did this was that it seemed like way too much honey. I only used about 2 tsps and that seeme to suffice. I also used my mortar and pestle and crushed my garlic and chilis added some cilantro, green onion, lime zest and cilantro (would have liked to add some lemon grass but didn't have any on hand). Also a little salt and I really liked it, perfect for the shrimp and delicate scallops! We have a restaurant that serves a very similar dish so I was happy to find a recipe to build off! thanks for sharing!!!
