        Directions

        In a non-corrosive bowl, mix together the marinade ingredients and refrigerate for at least 2 hours, preferably overnight.

        In a medium-sized bowl, mix together the garnish ingredients and let it chill in the refrigerator.

        Press marinade mixture through a fine sieve and discard solids, keep liquid well chilled. Add scallops to the liquid and allow to marinate for at least 1 hour, or until scallops appear slightly opaque. Arrange scallops back into their shells and top with garnish and cilantro leaves. Serve well chilled.
