Pan-Seared Scallops with Sesame Miso Glaze

Lodge Cast Iron | December 23, 2021

No need to go to a seafood restaurant if you’re in the mood for mildly sweet scallops. They’re surprisingly simple to make at home. And with our Lodge Reversible Grill/Griddle, it’s a snap to achieve that perfect, golden-brown pan sear. A savory sesame miso glaze adds a tangy depth of flavor that further enhances the scallops.

Pan-Seared Scallops with Sesame Miso Glaze


  • ¼ cup white miso paste
  • 1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon tamari sauce
  • 1 ½ tablespoons honey
  • 2 teaspoons sesame oil
  • 24 large sea scallops
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 24 toothpicks
  • 1 teaspoon chives, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon sesame seeds


  1. Combine miso paste, rice wine vinegar, tamari sauce, honey, and sesame oil.  Set aside.
  2. Pat scallops dry with a paper towel. (This removes excess moisture, which allows the scallops to sear, not steam.) Season all sides with salt, and skewer each scallop with a toothpick.
  3. Heat Reversible Grill/Griddle over medium-high heat, 4-5 minutes. Sear scallops 2-3 minutes without disturbing. Use a fish spatula to carefully flip scallops. Brush liberally with miso mixture, and cook for 1-2 minutes.  
  4. Remove scallops from griddle.  
  5. Sprinkle with chives and sesame seeds, and serve.
