Recipe: Lemon Ginger Scallops
Good Morning Everyone, I am fortunate enough to be able to write a weekly column for TheAjnabee.com. This week I wrote a recipe for Lemon Ginger Scallops. The full recipe and article can be found on www.theajnabee.com. Here are the deets: Ingredients: 1lb. sea scallops 1TB. of canola oil 2 c. of fresh lemon juice Zest of one lemon 2 inch piece of ginger, grated 1 tsp. of honey Salt/pepper PREPARATION: In a large bowl combine one cup of the lemon juice and all ingredients except for oil and scallops. Once thoroughly combined, add the scallops and toss to coat. Allow to marinate for at least 30 minutes. Add the canola oil to a sauté pan and turn stove on to medium heat. Once the oil is hot place the scallops and allow to cook and sizzle, browning each side approximately one minute on each side. Once you place the scallops in the pan, do not move them, to properly brown. When scallops have browned on both sides take out of pan, and use the remainder one cup of lemon juice to deglaze the pan and make a thick pan sauce. Drizzle this sauce on top of the scallops. Enjoy!!
