Made for the Goddesses of ZWT-9 & Family Picks - I wanted to make these tasty scallops during the Cajun part of the Tour, but I also wanted to put a bit of my own spin on the prep & presentation, so I decided to wait for Family Picks. Like another reviewer, I used white onion that I lightly caramelized & then removed from the pan to cook the scallops. This method produced a lovely caramel color w/o overcooking the scallops. I served them to dinner guests as part of a multi-recipe starter tasting-plate, so I dressed up the presentation w/tasting spoons, bits of crisped bacon & lemon zest. The bits of bacon idea came from a restaurant experience & adds a salty crunch we liked a lot. My guests were very impressed & I was a proud hostess. Thx for sharing your recipe w/us.
We eat a lot of seafood, so I'm always happy to try new and different ways to prepare it. This was super-tasty, with a nice kick to it. I reduced the amount of onion, because DH shies away from dishes that have too much onion, but I probably would've used the full amount if I was making this for just me -- the spice and onion together were great! I used Recipe#503970 for the Cajun spice. Now if only I could figure out how to properly brown my scallops, all would be right with the world... Thanks for posting!
