How to Make Maple Ginger Scallops

Step-by-Step

  1. Pat the scallops dry with paper towels and season one side with hot paprika; set aside.
  2. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, add oil. When it gets hot, add scallops, seasoned side down, and cook 1 ½ to 2 minutes per side until golden. While one side is searing, season the top with hot paprika.
  3. After a couple of minutes, flip them and sear for 1 ½ to 2 minutes. Transfer scallops to serving plates; set aside.
  4. Reduce the heat to medium and add butter to the skillet, swirling it around. Add ginger and sauté for 1 to 1 ½ minutes. Add chicken broth and maple syrup; stir until thickened, about 2 minutes.
  5. Spoon sauce over seared scallops and garnish with chopped chives. Serve with rice and steamed vegetables.
