- 1 pound of fresh sea scallops
- 1/4 cup Bourbon
- 1/4 cup maple syrup
- 2 tbsp. olive oil
Lightly score the tops and bottoms of the scallops with a crosshatch pattern, making sure your knife doesn't slice too deeply.
Whisk the liquids and seasonings together and pour over the scallops, letting them marinate for 15-30 minutes. Saute on a medium flame for 2-3 minutes per side. Plate them up and drizzle the pan juices over the top.
Doesn't that sound amazing?! I can't wait to hit the kitchen tomorrow. My weekend cooking agenda also includes Chicken Divan (with Quorn, of course--I'll feel guilty enough from the scallops!), homemade cranberry-raspberry relish, roasted beets and pumpkin bread. YUM!
