Hoisin Glazed Sea Scallops
Seared scallops make a healthy, fast, and delicious dinner. They are slightly sweet, meaty, and tender. I seared veggies then the scallops simply in a hot, non-stick pan with a little oil then glazed them with Hoisin Sauce. It took maybe 10 minutes. They are fast enough for a quick weeknight dinner and elegant enough for dinner guests.
I enjoy the strong flavor of hoisin and have used it in random dishes throughout the years. After making scallops one night and trying to cut back on carbs. I added veggies and they were perfect as a base for scallops.
How to buy fresh scallops
Look for firm, dry scallops with a texture almost like pork chops. Avoid shiny, wet and/or soft scallops, just like when buying any other fish. Secondly, you should be buying fewer than ten scallops per pound. Each scallop should weigh around 1½ or 1¾ ounces. Finally, you don’t want to buy scallops that smell ‘fishy’. Saltwater and/or seaweed smell indicates that they were recently caught, so keep your nose peeled for these.
