Hot scallop dinner and cold leftover scallop salad

Hot scallop dinner and cold leftover scallop salad I made scallops one night for dinner (2 lbs. of the fat ones, if you can get the pink, that’s twhat I sued and they are sooooootasty!) and a luncheon salad two days later with 1 lb of the leftovers

Instructions:

Dip the large scallops in a seasoned mix of flour.
Sauté rapidly until golden in big, heavy skillet in very hot oil. Make sure to turn once gingerly!
I used a little butter and corn oil
½ of these scallops I served with a homemade tartar sauce vegetable medly;
the others I conserved.

To conserve the scallops:

When cooll wrap them in paper towels and pop then in a sealed baggie to refrigerate

For the Tartar Sauce:

1 cup of mayonnaise
1 teaspoon sof lemon
2 tablespoon of sweet pickle relish,
or instead may use tiny chopped gherkins
1 tablespoons of tiny capers if large, chop them

For the salad–use individual salad bowls:

mixed field greens, arugula (for a more tangy salad) or sweet butter lettuce
½ small sliced red onion or 3 scallions
3 thinly sliced radishes
½ cup of dried cherries
¼ cup sliced almonds
2 Campari tomatoes quartered, circling the salad
1 tablespoon of chopped cilantro leaves only, no stems (optional)

Season the salad with extra Virgin Olive Oil, salt and crushed black pepper (if desired garlic powder) toss the middle part, but leave the tomatoes arrange the plump cold scallops on top drizzle Saba apple must on top of the scallops and tomatoes

If serving more than 4, gently slice cold scallops and place on top of the salad, golden side up.

Bring the salad to the table and enjoy a healthy, interesting and zesty salad.

I love Saba Must (usually sells for between $38 if you purchase it in St. Louis’ The Hill and $56 a bottle in Caputo’s in Salt Lake City, but it’s worth every centavo. And don’t be stingy with it–be generous! As Felipe’s Tia Zoila always said, The food you eat is the only thing you take with you when you leave this Earth to cross over to the Other Side!

Enjoy!
