    Dill Cream

    Zucchini and Carrot Cakes

    Scallops

    Directions:

    1. 1
      For the cream, combine sour cream, heavy cream, lemon juice, lemon zest, dill, scallions, salt and pepper in a bowl and mix well.
    2. 2
      For the zucchini carrot cakes, twist the zucchini and carrots in a dry kitchen towel to remove excess moisture.

      Mix with the onion, corn, eggs and dill in a bowl. Whisk in the flour, salt and pepper. Let stand for 20-30 minutes.
    4. 4
      Heat the butter in a saute pan. Add the zucchini mixture by 1/4 cupfuls and saute until golden brown on both sides. Keep warm.
    5. 5
      For the scallops, pat scallops with paper towel to dry well. Sear in a hot skillet until golden brown on both sides. Season to taste.
    6. 6
      To assemble, place one vegetable cake on each plate and top each with 1 scallop. Top with the dill cream and finely chopped tomatoes.

      I am not particularly fond of scallops, but this was fantastic! Someone complained of the strong dill - might I suggest using an herb that you like better. I had no fresh dill but did have fresh basil so used that and loved it. Would give it 10 stars if I could.

      Great recipe! I love the zucchini/carrot cakes. The corn and dill were so nice with it. Everything really came together nicely. I will make this again.

      I really liked the combination of the crunchy zucchini cakes with the juicy seared scallops. The dill cream was a bit too strong for me. When making this again, I will put half the lemon juice and dill. Thanks for posting this recipe.
