Scallops are right up at the top of my list for my favorite seafood. I’m always trying to come up with new recipes for them. They’re quite versatile and lend themselves to so many different preparations.
I know you’ll enjoy this one.
1/2 pound ocean scallops, cut into 1-inch bites
1 orange, cut into little triangles
1 red pepper, cut into 1-inch pieces
1-inch knob of frozen ginger, sliced paper-thin
1/2 stick unsalted butter
2 TB peanut oil
2 TB dark brown sugar
juice of one orange
1/4 cup soy sauce
2 TB sesame seeds
Mix together remaining brown sugar, orange juice, soy sauce, and sesame seeds.
Heat iron skillet over medium high and add in the butter and oil. When the butter gets sizzly and slightly tan, place the skewers in the pan. Cook 2 minutes. Turn over. Cook 1 minute and add the soy sauce mixture. Cook 1 more minute and remove skewers from pan.
Serve with sauce spooned over top.
