Seared scallops with home grown orange, brandy, whiskey, & mint reduction topped with a hint of caviar! In my husband Steve’s words, “Perfection on a Plate!”
I don’t measure….LOL but here goes:
Towards the end, add a couple of mint leaves for flavor making sure not to “burn” the mint leaves.
Scallops….a hint of salt and pepper on both sides….depending on the thickness of the scallops…usually about 2 minutes per side should be good enough.
Let the orange glaze cool so it can thicken before drizzling over scallops.
Chop mint leaves and carve out the inner of a tomato, then dice and garnish for presentation.
A hint of Hackelback caviar to off set the sweetness of the orange glaze.
Bon appetit – of course a nice glass of La Crema Chardonnay paired well….in my opinion.
