How to Make SEARED SCALLOPS WITH ORANGE BUTTER

Step-by-Step

  1. VERY IMPORTANT! ZEST YOUR ORANGES FIRST. RESERVE A TBLSP OF ZEST.

    CUT AROUND ORANGE TO PEEL AND CUT SEGMENTS FROM THE ORANGE. SET ASIDE SEGMENTS

    SQUEEZE JUICE INTO BOWL AND SET ASIDE-SHOULD BE AROUND 1/4 CUP OF JUICE.
  2. PAT SCALLOPS VERY DRY AND SEASON WITH SALT & PEPPER.

    SEAR SCALLOPS IN 2 TBSP BUTTER UNTIL CARAMELIZED ON EACH SIDE. (ABOUT A MINUTE) PATIENCE IS KEY-ONLY TURN THE SCALLOPS ONCE.
  3. SET SEARED SCALLOPS ASIDE WHILE PREPARING SAUCE.

    SAUTE SHALLOTS IN SMALL AMOUNT OF BUTTER UNTIL CLEAR.

    ADD IN ORANGE JUICE, ZEST AND CHICKEN STOCK OR WINE.

    REDUCE THIS TO HALF.
  4. ***REMOVE SAUCE FROM HEAT***
    WHISK COLD BUTTER 6 TBLSP INTO THE SAUCE A CUBE OR TWO AT A TIME.

    THIS WILL EMULSIFY THE SAUCE.

    ARRANGE SCALLOPS ON PLATTER-SPOON OVER SAUCE

    ARRANGE ORANGE SEGMENTS ON TOP AS GARNISH.

    A LITTLE PARSLY FOR COLOR IS ALWAYS NICE WITH THIS FOR PRESENTATION.

    ENJOY!
