Grilled Sea Scallops with Asparagus Recipe


Grilled Sea Scallops with Asparagus Recipe

For this recipe you will need:
Sea scallops
salmon caviar
asparagus
olive oil
lemon
1. Thaw frozen sea scallops overnight in the home refrigerator without opening the packaging.

You should not use a microwave or hot water because it spoils the taste of the scallops.
Do not thaw scallops at room temperature and without packaging. In this case bacteria grow intensely.
In a pinch, if you have not enough time for thawing, run cold water over packaging.


2. Remove the scallop “foot”, if present. That is a small inedible muscle through which a scallop is attached to the shell.

3. Dry sea scallops after thawing with a napkin.

4. Fry scallops in a hot pan of olive oil for 1-2 minutes until each side slightly browned.

5. Boil the asparagus in a small amount of water for 3 minutes. Immediately after cooking, cool the asparagus in cold water for 30 seconds. Dry asparagus with a napkin, sprinkle it with olive oil and fry it in hot pan for 3 minutes.

6. Place two asparagus stalks on a narrow oblong dish.

7. Put three fried sea scallops above asparagus stalks. Sprinkle scallops with lemon juice.

8. Spread some salmon caviar above sea scallops.
