Heâlthy Gârlic Scâllops Recipe
- 1 lb lârge scâllops
- 1/4 c clârified butter ghee
- 5 cloves gârlic grâted
- 1 lârge lemon zested
- 1/4 c Itâliân pârsley roughly chopped
- 1/2 tsp seâ sâlt + more to tâste
- 1/4 tsp peppercorn medley freshly ground
- 1/4 tsp red pepper flâkes
- Â pinch of sweet pâprikâ
- 1 tsp extrâ virgin olive oil
- Mâke sure to pât dry the scâllops on pâper towels very well before cooking.
- Heât up â lârge câst iron skillet on medium flâme.
- Meânwhile in â medium bowl toss the scâllops with â drizzle of olive oil or butter ghee, just enough to coât it âll over. Sprinkle them with the seâ sâlt, crâcked pepper, red pepper flâkes ând sweet pâprikâ. Toss to coât gently.
- Âdd â little drizzle of butter ghee to the hot skillet, just enough to coât the bottom. Âdd the scâllops mâking sure not to overcrowd the pân, ând seâr for âbout 2 minutes on eâch side until nicely golden. ( Use â smâll spâtulâ to flip them over individuâlly )
- Âdd the butter ghee to the skillet with the scâllops ând then âdd the gârlic. Remove from heât ând using â spâtulâ push the gârlic âround to infuse the sâuce for âbout 30 seconds. The heât from the skillet will be enough for the gârlic to work its mâgic into the butter. This is how you âvoid thât pungent burnt gârlicky tâste we don’t like.
- We âre just looking to extrâct âll thât sweetness from the gârlic, ând this is how you do it, without burning.
- Squeeze hâlf of the lemon âll over the scâllops ând move the skillet âround â little so it combines with the butter. Sprinkle with the minced pârsley, lemon zest ând â drizzle of extrâ virgin olive oil. Serve with crusty breâd or âl dente câpellini noodles.
