Scallops

Post by Gogo » Mon Dec 31, 2018 11:11 pm

The piggly-wiggly had U-10 scallops on special so I bought a bunch.

What's your favorite scallop preparation?

Nice.

Seared to perfection with some nice little sauce.

Seared with garlic butter, lots of good bread to soak it all up.

I got the Grand Central Oyster Bar cookbook for Christmas and there's a recipe for seared scallops in pink peppercorn sauce that looks good. I also happen to have all the ingredients, which is a plus. I may do that with half and then grill the other half with bit of soy-ginger baste. But I have votes here for seared with garlic butter, which is always a winner. Brown butter might add an element, too.

These are lowly wet-packed scallops. It's frickin hard to find dry packs anymore.

Cooked quickly, squeeze of lemon.

I don't believe in grilling seafood. Too hard not to overcook. Exception for thick fish and fish steaks, maybe.

Seared and perched atop a plate of linguine in brown oyster sauce or a light pesto cream. Toasted pecans, shredded basil and crushed hazelnuts. Halved cherry tomatoes. Bacon if possible.

Lightly breaded and fried lightly with a side of fries and cole slaw.

That's kind of hard to do at home though. That's more of a restaurant thing. Like pizza and Boston creme pie.

Do you pronounce it scawl-ops of scall-ips?

I haven't made them in ages but last time it was a tray baked thing. I used a bit of Mrs. Dash and some bread crumbs as a coating. Put them on a tray with some onions, and aspargagus and popped it into the oven for 18 mins.

I used to pan fry them the way you did yours but made a saffron sauce for them. I've haven't made them like that in ages. It was pretty good.

And you should be happy you got an additional reply to your lame thread that no one responded to.

The pecans and hazelnuts don’t belong in there in my opinion, but otherwise, yes, yum.

18 minutes in the oven would ruin a scallop, nope.

I used to skewer them and put them on the grill for just a couple minutes, then serve in a roasted red pepper sauce. I felt that the flavours were very complementary. That said, I haven't done that for years because generally prefer to have the scallops a bit more highlighted than they were in that heavy sauce.

Fried scallops are indeed excellent, at least the local ones in (southern) New England. They are very sweet and go well with a nicely seasoned breading. But that's something you get at shack, not something you make at home.

At home I like them broiled with white wine or pan seared. One time I prepared them with black tea, but I don't remember the details. It was good. I disagree on the topic of grilling seafood: I think it's a wonderful method, but I do agree that it's hard to get it right.

You need to be more attentive to your grill. When doing seafood you can't walk away from the grill. You stand there and wait.

Sure. But I guess other people may be better at it than I am.

Also I guess it seems like a lot of effort to build a fire when you are going to be cooking scallops for maybe a minute. But that may be just me.

But I like to play with fire. Actually I don't often do scallops on the grill, I have, but not often. Shrimp and fish often. Oysters some. Actually one of my favorites is shrimp and salmon kabobs. If you get the mass of each right they cook in the same time. There is something about the combination of flavors that I really like.

I just came across this demo of grilled scallops that sounds pretty good. I am amazed he left them alone on the grill as long as he did, though.

And *ahem* Stonington is in Connecticut, not Rhode Island. There was a Revolutionary War battle there.

Is is Scollops, like the "call" in "call you on the phone", or Scahllops, like the "Cal" in California?

In my dialect, neither. For me it has the a of father, like Arnold Schwarzenegger's pronunciation of California. But I have heard people give it the a of most people's pronunciation of California.

The New Yorker I know best uses the A in California. I use the A in call, which seems to be the same vowel I use for father.

I pronounce call with the aw of awful, which for me is different from the a of father (and scallop).

Interesting. My experience moving to the NY metro area was that I had crossed the linguistic divide on that word. I'm not sure where the line is, though. I'll have to pay attention to the locals next time I'm in Stonington.
