How Do France, Italy, and Greece Use Them?
This was a Rachael Ray recipe I changed. She used more capers, which made it too salty. She also used vermouth and I like the lemon juice and the butter! Cut this recipe in half for 2 or if there is just 1 of you, then you'll have leftovers! This was a very favorite recipe of Jerry's and mine!
Sue's Best Sea Scallops
3 T extra virgin olive oil
1 shallot, chopped
2 14oz cans quartered artichoke hearts in water, drained
salt and pepper
1/4 cup parsley leaves, chopped
1 T. capers, drained
16 sea scallops
1/2 cup lemon juice
3-4 pats of butter
Heat a large non-stick skillet over medium high heat. Add two turns of olive oil, about 2 T. of chopped shallots. Cook shallots in oil a minute or so, add artichoke hearts and toss to heat through. Season with salt and pepper and combine with parsley and capers. Transfer the artichokes/shallots to a serving dish.
Wipe out the pan to heat, raising heat a bit. Season drained and trimmed scallops with salt and pepper. Add 1 turn of olive oil to a very hot pan and immediately place scallops in pan. Sear the scallops in a single layer, causing them to caramelize, 2 minutes on each side. Add the lemon juice and butter pats and allow it to reduce a bit, 1-2 minutes. Arrange the scallops over the top of the artichoke hearts and serve.

Later it was shrimp scampi and peas for dinner. Then chair, wine, TV, and Bruiser napping in my lap! I watched the second 9-1-1 TV show and was totally disappointed. It was all about a devastating California earthquake and 99.9% of the show was filmed inside a fallen building. I don't get claustrophobic but this show made me feel that way.
All I know. Nuff said. Happy Tuesday. Ciao.
