DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 400F degrees.
  • First, make Phyllo Baskets: Lightly brush each phyllo sheet with butter.
  • Stack and cut into 4 rectangles.
  • Press each rectangle gently into 4 large muffin cups, leaving empty cup between each to allow for overhang.
  • Bake in preheated oven for about 5 minutes or until golden; transfer to rack and let cool.
  • Cut scallops in half crosswise if they are large; sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  • In large nonstick skillet, melt butter over medium-high heat and cook scallops and lime leaves (if using), stirring gently, for about 5 minutes or until scallops are firm but still slightly opaque.
  • With slotted spoon, transfer to plate and set aside.
  • Add gin, lime rind and juice to skillet and bring to a simmer.
  • Return scallops to skillet, turning gently to coat; heat through.
  • Remove lime leaves and discard.
  • Spoon scallops and liquid into phyllo baskets and serve immediately.
