Jumbo Asian Scallops with Cucumber Salad

When I saw this plate it took all of me to take a few extra minutes to get this photo. I just wanted to dive in and eat-eat-eat! Tonight's dinner was so light yet extremely satisfying – i'm still salivating over it. The cucumber salad is the perfect accompaniment to the scallops and the subtleness and heavier texture of the rice brings it all together to make the perfect meal. 

For the scallops, mix together 2/3 cups soya sauce, juice of 1 lemon and 1 lime, 3tbs sesame oil and marinade them for 5 minutes only, any longer will make them mushy. Remove from marinade and pan sear them for 3 minutes on each side on very high heat. Remove the scallops and then boil the remaining marinade until it reduces. Serve with rice and yummy cucumber salad. My husband is the best!
