Caramelized Scallops

by Shawnda on April 5, 2011

in Seafood

Caramelized Scallops with White Wine

The Foodie Groom loves scallops. Like, loves. Similar to my love for all things chocolate + peanut butter. But times 14. I waited quietly while he was flipping through our shiny new copy of Big Bowl of Love, waiting on him to get to the scallops recipe I had seen earlier. Big juicy scallops, caramelized, and served with a lemony wine sauce. These were our kind of scallops.

I almost never do cookbook reviews unless I know it’s something I can get really excited about. And we were really excited about this one. The book was photographed by a couple of our favorite food bloggers and photographers, Todd and Diane of White on Rice Couple. We knew if they were on the project, it was going to be a good one!

Big Bowl of Love I think The Foodie Groom summed it up best with, “I bet we end up making almost all of these.” Big Bowl of Love is a celebration of good food and the people for whom we cook. Because for many people, cooking isn’t just about the food. It’s about the friends who are coming over for girls’ night out, the grandparents coming to play with the baby, or the sister who lives too far away to see more than a couple of times a year.

Big Bowl of Love is full of our kind of food – not just mine, not just his – ours. Appetizers that vary from the quick and accessible to the kind you bust out when your girlfriends are coming over. Hearty, comfort foods for cooler weather and lighter fare perfect for grilling seasons. And then there is my favorite section: desserts :)

Caramelized Scallops with White Wine

If you like scallops, you’ll really like this recipe. The sweetness from the scallops balance nicely with the acidity from the wine and lemon. For the sugar, I sprinkled an unmeasured amount on a plate (but it was closer to 1/4 cup). It seemed to be plenty – just a tip if you’re like me and always on the verge of running out of sugar!

Caramelized Scallops with White Wine

Sweet, caramelized scallops topped with a lemony pan sauce.

Ingredients

  • 12 large scallops
  • Pinch of kosher salt
  • Freshly cracked black pepper
  • 4 Tbsp clarified butter
  • 3-4 Tbsp white sugar
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine
  • 1 lemon, zested and squeezed
  • 1 Tbsp parsley, finely chopped
  • 8 chives, chopped

Instructions

  1. Heat butter on medium high.
  2. Pat scallops dry. Season both sides with salt and pepper. Spread sugar on a plate and dip one side of each scallop into the sugar before placing it into the saute pan.
  3. Cook for 2-3 minutes on each side, until the scallops are nicely seared. Flip and cook for another two minutes. Add wine and lemon juice and reduce the sauce by half.
  4. Serve scallops topped with pan sauce, lemon zest, parsley, and chives.

Notes

Yields: 3 servings

Hi, I would love to be entered into the cookbook giveaway contest. I am new to cooking and after a whirlwind 2010 ….I eneded up in a new city (San Francisco) with a new baby, a new man and a new job (stay at home mom) I would certainly utilize the cookbook to the full extent. After spending a couple of weeks stressing out about menu planning I discovered your blog and get my inspiration for what to make for dinner from here!
thanks, wendi

I often ask myself if one person can own too many cookbooks? And then I think, “What a preposterous thought!” The 2 recipes you’ve shown makes it look like a keeper.

How delicious and different! Non-marinated artichoke hearts are rather difficult to come by in my neck of the woods. This recipe appeals to me because of all of the additional flavors added to ensure a tastier dip. I hope it works with the marinated artichoke jars that are sold in the jar. Perfect New Year’s Eve cocktail party food. Thank you.

I realized that I was commenting on your post when I should’ve been commenting on the scallops recipe from the book in the giveaway. Oops! This recipe sounds perfect: simple with a touch of elegance, the kind of food I like to cook at times. I love scallops and so does my sister. It’s time to turn my fiance on…

175 Gwenevere April 7, 2011 at 4:45 am

A cookbook where you try almost every recipe? Sign me up! Also I have a copyright question for you….I’m thinking of starting my own food blog and this licensing stuff has me a little freaked out. (I don’t want to step on anyone’s creative toes) If I want to post about a recipe I tried off of your site, I need to ask you permission to do so first? AND if I changed things up a bit, I can’t rewrite the recipe to reflect those changes? Finally…are you a nice person – when the time comes – which it may never (food blogging is not easy) will you grant me authorization to post your recipes on my blog? ;)

Reply

176 foodiebride April 7, 2011 at 8:26 am

@Gwenevere, The theme of blogger etiquette is “generous” :) You never have to ask me to use a recipe on your blog. When I use a recipe from another blog, I always cite the source either in the blog post or under the recipe, with a link back to that blogger. I always use my own photo and then rewrite the instructions in my own words. Hope that helps!

I didn’t think you could get better than caramelized scallops… and then I read about the wine sauce. Perfection.

Where did you get the Cookbook from? Is it one I could find at any bookstore?

Reply

184 foodiebride April 7, 2011 at 8:32 am

@Joanna, It was released this week so a major bookstore or Amazon should have it!

Reply

185 Joanna April 7, 2011 at 8:01 am

Oh! Another quick question…

The recipe only calls for one side of the scallops to be dipped in sugar. Does it matter what side goes in the pan first? The sugar side or plain side?

Reply

186 foodiebride April 7, 2011 at 8:32 am

@Joanna, Sugar-side down first.

Very interesting … I am a scallop lover myself. I cook them similarly but haven’t tried using sugar – sounds delicious. I usually serve mine over a simple cauliflower, pea or butternut squash puree (depending on the season).
