Five-Spice Scallops with Lemon Sauce

I love this recipe--it is fast, easy and delicious.  I have been buying frozen scallops at Costco and they work beautifully for this dish.  They are not cheap, but when you want a treat, this is a good preparation.  And a 2 lb. bag of them is enough to easily feed 4-5 people and more affordable than eating out.

1 lb. scallops

1 1/2 Tbs. soy sauce
1 1/2 Tbs. rice wine
1/2 tsp. five spice powder
pinch of black pepper
1 Tbs. minced garlic

1.  Mix all ingredients, marinate the scallops for at least 30 minutes, as long as a day.
2.  Dry scallops on a paper towel when ready to cook them.  Dredge through flour.  Heat 2 tbs. oil in a skillet and cook until there is a golden brown crust 1-3 minutes.  Flip and cook an additional minute.  Take off the heat.

Lemon Sauce:
1/4 c. stock
1 1/2 Tbs. lemon juice
1/2 tsp. toasted sesame oil
 1 tsp. sugar
1/2 tsp. corn starch

1. Mix all ingredients and add to the hot pan you just cooked the scallops in.  Mix until thickens, then add scallops back in and serve immediately.
