Preparation

  • Follow the recipe for Seared Scallops, using 2 Tbs. peanut or extra-virgin olive oil to sear the scallops.
  • Once the scallops have been transferred to a plate and the pan has cooled somewhat, return the pan to medium heat. Add the oil, onion, carrot, and ginger, and sauté until the onion begins to soften, 3 to 4 min. Stir in the curry paste. Add the coconut milk and simmer, stirring, until smooth, about 2 min. Add the herbs and lime juice. Reduce the heat to low and return the scallops and any accumulated juices to the pan. Gently roll the scallops around to coat them in the sauce and warm them through. Taste for salt and serve immediately.

    Oh...my...god. This is delicious. And it's gluten-free, dairy-free, sugar-free, grain-free (paleo), nut-free...well, you get the picture. The recipe doesn't say that it's the caramelized stuff that gets left in the pan that takes the sauce over the top. Our carrots didn't dissolve even though we sliced them very very thin, but they were great anyway. Will do this as often as we feel we can afford to splurge on the scallops!

    I made this dish for my fiance and best friend, and all three of us loved it. I thought it was flavorful yet mild enough to still taste the scallops own delicious flavor. Great compliment to the dish. It was also very easy to make.
