SEARED SCALLOPS WITH PONZU, GINGER AND CHIVES

Prep Time 15 minutes

Serves 4

 

INGREDIENTS

12 jumbo scallops

2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

6 tablespoons ponzu sauce

2 teaspoons minced ginger

4 tablespoons chopped fresh chives

 

DIRECTIONS

  • Rinse the scallops and pat dry using a towel or paper towel.
  • Heat a medium skillet over medium to high heat, add and heat the extra virgin olive oil.
  • Place the dry scallops in the hot oil. Sear until golden brown on each side, about 2 to 3 minutes per side. 
  • Remove the scallops from the pan, set on the side.
  • Add the ponzu sauce, stirring and scraping up solids from the bottom of the pan. Reduce the liquid until it becomes thickened, about 1 1/2 to 2 minutes.
  • Return the scallops to the pan and add the ginger. Stir until the scallops are coated. Add 3 tablespoons chives just before removing the pan from the heat.
  • Place the scallops on a plate and spoon the glaze over. Sprinkle with the remaining chives.

 

Serve immediately.

Enjoy!
