Quick Bite: Sea Scallops in White Wine

1 Comment

20121130-202008.jpgHere’s the recipe: about a pound of sea scallops. Rinse them and dry them on a towel. Season with salt, pepper, garlic powder, lemon peel on the towel. In a hot skillet (cast iron perfect for this) heat about a tablespoon of olive oil on medium heat.

Put the scallops in and sear on one side for about 3-4 minutes. Turn and sear the other side. After 3-4 minutes add about a cup of wine. Glug glug glug glug. Don’t measure! I beg you!

Keep scallops in pan for a minute more then remove to serving plate. Add about a tablespoon of butter and about a tablespoon of capers. Stir removing any bits stuck in pan. When sauce is thick, pour over scallops.

I served them with Wegman’s mac & cheese (they use nutmeg) and roasted Brussels sprouts.

Have a yummy day!
