Number of servings: 2

Ingredients required:

  • 2 tbsp. lime juice 
  • 1 tbsp. tequila 
  • 1/4 tsp. hot sauce 
  • 2 tsp. olive oil 
  • 2 tsp. chopped fresh cilantro 
  • 1 clove garlic, chopped 
  • 1/4 tsp. salt 
  • 8 oz. scallops 
  • Cooking spray

Combine all ingredients except scallops in a small bowl, stirring to combine. Add scallops and marinate in the refrigerator 15 to 20 minutes.

Remove scallops from marinade, reserving 2 tablespoons of the liquid. Heat a large skillet coated with cooking spray over medium-high heat; add the scallops and cook 1-2 minutes on each side or until opaque and firm. Add remaining 2 tablespoons of marinade to the pan and cook and additional 1 minute or until bubbling.
