  1. Preheat grill to high.
  2. Whisk teriyaki sauce, lime juice, ginger and garlic together in a bowl. Reserve half the mixture for the salad; pour the rest over the scallops in a resealable plastic bag. Marinate 20 minutes, chilled.
  3. Blanch broccoli and peas in boiling salted water for 1 minute. Transfer to ice water, then drain. Toss blanched vegetables in a large bowl with remaining ingredients and reserved dressing (marinade).
