1 1/2 teaspoons soy sauce
1 1/2 tablespoons white-wine vinegar
1/2 teaspoon sugar
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon Asian sesame oil
3 cups thinly sliced Napa cabbage
1 medium carrot -- shredded
1 bunch scallion -- sliced thin
1/2 pound sea scallops
2 bunches thinly sliced scallion greens

Preparation / Directions:

In a small bowl whisk together soy sauce, vinegar, sugar, 1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil, sesame oil, and salt and pepper to taste. In a bowl toss cabbage, carrot, and scallion with 2 tablespoons soy sauce mixture. Remove tough muscle from side of each scallop if necessary. Pat scallops dry with paper towels and season with salt and pepper. In a heavy non-stick skillet just large enough to hold scallops in one layer heat remaining 1/2 tablespoon olive oil over moderately high heat until hot but not smoking and sauté scallops until golden and cooked through, about 2 minutes on each side. Transfer scallops to a bowl. Add remaining soy sauce mixture to skillet and boil until reduced to a glaze. Add glaze to scallops and toss to coat well. Keep scallops warm. Add slaw to skillet and cook over moderately high heat, stirring, just until cabbage is wilted, 1 to 2 minutes. Season slaw with salt and pepper. Serve slaw topped with scallops and garnished with scallion greens.
