Ww Garlicky Lemon Scallops 4-Points

Ww Garlicky Lemon Scallops 4-Points created by Nif_H

From the Weight Watchers cookbook called "Cook it Quick" Make sure to pat the scallops dry before you mix them with the flour and salt. That way they won't soak up too much flour. You can substitute smaller Scallops just make sure you adjust the cooking time. You don't want to overcook them or they will become tough and rubbery. I like to serve this with recipe #272832.

    The recipe was pretty good but there were no directions as to how hot to get the pan before adding the scallops. Later it says to saute, which implies a lower heat, but it seems sacrilegious to cook scallops without searing them, so I seared them on one side then added the garlic, etc. Adding the lemon made a really nice gravy-like sauce but it was way too tart. I think a couple of tablespoons of seafood or chicken broth with just a squeeze of lemon juice would have been perfect. Of course, wine would have been great, but then you're adding more calories. I might come back and tweak this recipe one day.

    Added lemon zest and some wine. Not wonderful, but ok.

    These scallops are terrific and took no time to make. I used less garlic but I recommend that you use the full amount. I agree that a splash of white wine would have been a nice addition. We had the scallops on a bed of brown rice pasta tossed with a touch of butter and fresh parmesan. It would have presented better if I used a coloured pasta, but it still tasted great! Made for Zaar Stars tag game. Enjoy! :)

    Made as written and turned out great, but if you are not too concerned with WW points, I think a little white wine splashed on with the lemon juice would be a nice touch, or perhaps a bit more lemon. I used fresh sage instead of ground. Made for tag game at Kittencalskitchen.com.
