Seared Scallops with Lemon and Vodka

This delicious dish developed by Aida Mollenkamp is a delicate dish with just a few key ingredients, the best one of course, is vodka! 

Aida recommends to dress up the seared scallops with lemon, cream, and tarragon or toss with pasta.

 

Ingredients

•1 pound sea scallops

•1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon olive oil

•2/3 cup vodka

•2 tablespoons heavy cream

•1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice

•1 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest

•2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh tarragon leaves

 

 

1.Pat scallops dry with paper towels, rub with 1 teaspoon of the olive oil, and season with salt and freshly ground black pepper.

2.Heat remaining 1 tablespoon oil in a large frying pan over high heat. When oil shimmers, add scallops and cook on each side until golden brown, about 4 minutes total. Transfer to a plate and reserve.

3.Remove the pan from heat and carefully add vodka, scrape up any browned bits from the bottom of the pan, and stir to incorporate into the sauce. Return the pan to medium-low heat and add cream, lemon juice, and lemon zest; stir to combine. Return scallops and any accumulated juices to the pan and cook until heated through, about 2 minutes.

4.Stir in tarragon and serve with bread as an hors d’oeuvre or over pasta as a main course.
