FFwD: Scallops with Caramel-Orange Sauce
This weekâ€™s French Fridays with Dorie recipe took me waaaaay beyond my comfort zone. Iâ€™m not much of a seafood fan to begin with but something like scallops? I have never even had the desire to cook them. It didnâ€™t help that the only scallops I could find were these massive guys the size of my fist! No joke.
The recipe was very simple (which Iâ€™m realizing is is a trend in Around My French Table). The scallops cooked through in about 5 minutes and the sauce came together in about the same time. I will admit to having to make the caramel twice because I have zero patience but as long as you pay attention to your sugar, there shouldnâ€™t be any problems.
The sauce is fantastic! Who knew caramel and orange made such an interesting pair. I did not like the scallops at all but I can see using the sauce on other things, like maybe some shrimp or a not-so-fishy fish.
