Crispy Scallops with Soy Dipping Sauce

Dipping Sauce


  1. Preheat oven to 450°F. Lightly oil a wire rack large enough to hold scallops in a single layer. Place the rack on a baking sheet and set aside.
  2. Whisk together egg white, canola oil, sesame oil and soy sauce in a medium bowl until creamy. Stir together breadcrumbs, sesame seeds and ginger in a shallow dish.
  3. Add the scallops to the egg-white mixture, tossing to coat well. Transfer the scallops to the breadcrumb mixture in two or three batches, tossing each with a spoon to coat evenly.
  4. Place the scallops on the prepared rack; they should not touch. Bake until the outsides are golden and centers are opaque, about 10 minutes.
  5. To make dipping sauce: Stir together soy sauce, vinegar, scallions and honey in a small bowl. Serve alongside the hot scallops.
