1/2 cup gluten free hoisin sauce
1/2 cup rice vinegar (not seasoned)
1/3 cup fresh cilantro, finely chopped
1/4 cup fresh lime juice
1/4 cup soy sauce
2 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon light brown sugar
3 teaspoons fresh ginger, finely minced
1 teaspoon fish sauce
2 garlic cloves, finely minced
pinch red pepper flakes (optional)
2 pounds large sea scallops, muscle membrane removed

1. Preheat Broiler: Move oven rack 6 inches below broiler element. Preheat broiler.

2. Prep Pan: Spray broiler pan with cooking spray and line the interior of the broiler pan with foil.

3. Make Sauce: In medium bowl, combine hoisin sauce, vinegar, cilantro, lime juice, soy sauce, brown sugar, ginger, fish sauce, garlic, and pepper flakes, if using.

4. Coat Scallops: In a separate medium bowl, gently toss scallops with approximately 1/3 cup of the mixture.
