Quick and delicious recipe! After purchasing a bag of frozen scallops on sale at Target, I was at a loss for a recipe. While the scallops thawed in a collander, I sauted the garlic with 4 minced green onions. Instead of tarragon, I used dried basil from my garden and then served the scallops over angel hair pasta. Next time, I will definitely use more garlic and herbs.
- 1 1⁄2 lbs dry sea scallops (the larger type WITHOUT water added)
- 1 garlic clove, minced
- 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 1⁄2-3⁄4 teaspoon crushed dried tarragon (use twice as much chopped fresh tarragon)
- 1⁄8 teaspoon paprika
- 1 -2 tablespoon shredded parmesan cheese
- If some scallops are a lot larger than others, you may want to cut the larger ones in half.
- Rinse scallops and pat dry with paper towels.
- In a skillet heat butter over medium-high heat. Add the garlic and lightly sautee for about 1 minute.
- Add scallops and tarragon. Cook for about 6-7 minutes or until scallops are opaque; turning each once halfway through cooking.
- Sprinkle with paprika and parmesan cheese and serve immediately.
