DIRECTIONS

  • Place all the ingredients, except one of the jalapeños, the scallops and olive oil, in a blender or food processor and puree.
  • Taste the mixture and add more jalapeño, as desired.
  • Transfer the mixture to a mixing bowl and set aside.
  • Rinse the scallops in cold water; pat dry.
  • In a nonstick sauté pan over high heat, heat the olive oil just until smoking.
  • Add the scallops and sear well without stirring or tossing.
  • Carefully add the citrus mixture to the pan and bring to a boil.
  • When the liquid reaches a boil, carefully turn the scallops with a cooking utensil and cook for 1 minute more.
  • Remove the scallops, cover to keep warm and reduce the sauce to half its original volume over high heat.
  • Reserve the liquid in the pan.
  • Divide the scallops among four plates.
  • Pour the liquid from the pan directly over the plates.
  • Garnish with the lime wedges and cilantro.
