  1. DIPPING SAUCE 2 Tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce 2 Tablespoons rice-wine vinegar 1 Tablespoon scallions; chopped 1 teaspoon honey
  2. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Lightly oil a wire rack large enough to hold scallops in a single layer. Put the rack on a baking sheet and set aside.
  3. In a bowl, whisk together egg white, vegetable oil, sesame oil, and soy sauce until creamy.
  4. In a shallow dish, stir together breadcrumbs, sesame seeds, and ginger.
