“This is so easy. The cooking time listed reflects 1/2 hour of marination time, but it can be as little as 15 minutes or as long as 24 hours. The recipe doesn't specify which kind of miso, I would assume it's white or yellow miso. This recipe comes from Mark Bittman's Best Recipes in the World. He says "it's a traditional dish, in some parts of Japan the home-cooking equivalent of slathering something with barbecue sauce before cooking. For ease of use and strict authenticity, the miso should be thinned with mirin - it's too thick to use straight. Mark talks about different types of mirin and suggests that hon-mirin is superior to aji-mirin, all good if you have access to a good Asian market!”

Directions

  1. Preheat a broiler (or grill), setting the rack as close as possible to the heat source. Put the miso in a bowl, add the mirin and whisk until smooth. Stir in the onion, a little bit of salt, and a pinch of cayenne.
  2. Add the scallops and marinate while the broiler or grill preheats, or refrigerate for up to a day.
  3. Broil until lightly browned, without turning, for 2 to 3 minutes, or grill, turning once after a minute or 2. Sprinkle with the lime juice and serve.
