Scallops with Citrus Ginger Sauce
Prep Time: 5 mins Cook Time: 5 mins Servings: 4
2 tbsp avocado oil
1 1/2 lb sea scallops
1 orange, zested and juiced
1 lemon, juiced
1 tbsp fresh ginger, grated
2 tbsp butter, or ghee
sea salt, to taste
fresh thyme, for garnish
Pat your scallops dry with a paper towel and sprinkle them with sea salt.
Heat the oil in a sauté pan over medium high heat. When the oil is nearly smoking, place your scallops in the pan and sear for approximately one and a half to two minutes on each side. Remove scallops to a plate.
Reduce the heat to medium and add the orange and lemon juice, orange zest, grated ginger and butter to the pan. Whisk the sauce together in the pan until it's simmering, then add the scallops back to the pan and spoon the sauce on top.
Plate your scallops, drizzle more sauce on top and garnish with thyme.
