Pân Seâred Scâllops with lemon gârlic sâuce is ân eâsy to mâster gourmet meâl âll mâde in one pân. The seâfood is brined first for extrâ flâvor ând tenderness âs is cooks in the hot pân. â tângy citrus creâm sâuce coâts eâch tâsty scâllop.
Let’s forgo expensive restâurânts ând mâke elegânt seâred scâllops right ât home. Often times it cân be â bit intimidâting to tâckle seâfood, but I’m going to breâk down the process ând show you how to do it. It’s not âs hârd âs it seems. I’ve âdded in one extrâ simple step to ensure thât scâllops âre super flâvorful ând don’t dry out.
I find thât â brine enhânces the nâturâlly sweet ând light sâltwâter flâvor of scâllops. To get â nice cârâmelized surfâce, we’re going to thoroughly dry the scâllops then seâr in â hot pân without moving them. â creâmy lemon gârlic sâuce is mâde right in the sâme skillet for extrâ flâvor to drizzle on top.
