The nights here in the northeast are still muggy and the air is heavy, and I find few things more refreshing than my recipe for these scallops paired
with a nice crisp riesling, my personal favorite is Chateau St. Michelle.
4 oz unsalted butter
1 tbsp cilantro, chopped fine
1 tbsp sherry vinegar
1/4 tsp salt
Soften the butter, combine all the ingredients. Take siran wrap and place the butter in the middle of a sheet, roll the butter up in the siran and
created a log by twisting the ends and twirling, rounding out the butter. Place in the refrigerator and let harden.
1 cup plain Panko breadcrumbs
1 tbsp fresh parsley, chopped fine
2 tsp Kosher salt
I like to make my own panko with "fresh" day old bread, but store bought works just fine. Simply add all the ingredients together. You won't need that
much of the crust, so seal the bread crumbs and store in a dry area.
Pre-heat your oven to 400 degrees.Take 10-12 large sea scallops, get a saute pan smoking hot, add olive oil, sear the scallops on one side. Flip the
scallops, take out your butter "log" and cut 10-12 thin discs. Place the discs on top of the scallops, then place the panko mixture on top of the
butter. Place in your pre heated oven until the crust is a wonderful golden brown.
I usually eat these with a nice simple salad. Just a mesculun mix with avocados and pepitas with a light vinaigrette. Don't forget your wine!
