The fifty-seventh recipe I made with the Eating with Ellie group is Scallops with Warm Citrus Sauce can be found in Ellie Krieger's book Weeknight Wonders, on page 185. The theme for this week, From the Sea, was chosen by Margaret.
Ingredient list: lemon, oranges, canola oil, scallops, salt, pepper, shallots, tarragon, white wine, butter, and honey.
We pretty much love anything that comes from the sea and welcome the chance to use seafood in our meals. I like recipes that let you prep things and have them all ready to go when it is time to make dinner and this recipe allowed me to do that. Sectioning the citrus always takes me a good chunk of time because I don't do it often enough to get good and fast at it.
After those sections were all glistening nicely in the bowl, the rest of the preparation was fast and efficient. The sauce created by the wine and citrus is just perfect with these scallops. We really liked this recipe and I will make this one again as it is definitely worthy of a repeat.
