Ingredients

Orange-Ginger Mayonnaise

  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise or salad dressing
  • 2 tablespoons frozen orange juice concentrate, thawed
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped gingerroot
  • 2 teaspoons grated orange peel

Scallops

  • 2 tablespoons olive or vegetable oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped gingerroot
  • 1 1/2 pounds fresh bay scallops
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon coarsely ground pepper
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh mint leaves
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 tablespoon grated orange peel

Directions

  • 1
    Make Orange-Ginger Mayonnaise. Cover and refrigerate until serving.
  • 2
    Heat oil in 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium heat. Cook garlic and gingerroot in oil 1 minute, stirring frequently. Add scallops; sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cook 2 to 4 minutes, stirring frequently, until scallops are white.
  • 3
    Transfer scallops to serving bowl using slotted spoon. Add mint, parsley and orange peel; toss to coat. Serve with toothpicks or cocktail forks and Orange-Ginger Mayonnaise.

  • If the small bay scallops are not available, you can use sea scallops. Just cut them into smaller pieces before cooking.
  • Although the scallops are best if cooked just before serving, the mayonnaise mixture can be made and stored in the refrigerator up to 24 hours in advance.
  • Garnish the bowl with fresh orange slice twists and fresh mint sprigs.
