FFwD: Scallops with Caramel-Orange Sauce

March 25, 2011 in seafood by amanda

This week’s French Fridays with Dorie recipe took me waaaaay beyond my comfort zone. I’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 didn’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 I’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 shouldn’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.

If you’re interested in the recipe, make sure you check out Around My French Table and don’t forget to visit the French Fridays with Dorie blog to see how everyone else did this week!
