Miso Glazed Scallops with Soba Noodles

4 ounces soba noodles or whole-wheat spaghetti

1 1/2 T. white miso

1 T. mirin

1 T. rice vinegar

1 T. canola oil

1/2 tsp. minced ginger

1/2 tsp. minced garlic

1/2 pound dry sea scallops

1 tsp. extra-virgin olive oil

1/2 C. sliced scallions (3 to 4 scallions)


Put a large saucepan of water on to boil. Cook noodles, stirring occasionally, until just tender, 6 to 8 minutes or according to package directions. Drain and transfer to a medium bowl.  Meanwhile, whisk miso, mirin, vinegar, canola oil, ginger and garlic in a small bowl. Add scallops and stir gently to coat. Let marinate for 5 minutes (scallops will begin to break down if marinated longer). Using a slotted spoon, remove the scallops, reserving the marinade for the sauce.  Heat olive oil in a medium nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the scallops and cook until golden brown, about 3 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate and cover with foil to keep warm. Add the reserved marinade to the pan and cook over medium-high heat until brown, about 30 seconds. Pour the sauce over the noodles, add scallions and toss to coat. Top with the scallops and serve immediately.
