Ingredients:  
2/3 c. soy sauce
¼ c. fresh lemon juice
¼ c. fresh lime juice
3 T. plus 1 tsp sugar
2 tsp. finely grated peeled fresh ginger
2 tsp. Asian sesame oil

Directions:
Whisk together soy sauce, lemon and lime juices, sugar, ginger and sesame oil in a wide shallow nonreactive bowl. Add scallops and marinate, covered, at room temperature, 5 minutes on each side (do not marinate any longer, or scallops will become mushy once cooked). Transfer scallops to a plate and reserve marinade.

Heat ½ tsp. vegetable oil in a 12 in. nonstick skillet over moderately high heat until hot but not smoking, then sauté scallops, 6 to 8 at a time, until golden brown and just cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes on each of the 2 flat sides, transferring to a plate as cooked. Wipe out skillet and add ½ teaspoon oil between batches. Wipe out skillet again, then add marinade and boil until reduced to about 1/3 cup, about 2 minutes. Drizzle scallops with sauce.
