A unique and simple method for cooking scallops in a flavorful marinade/sauce.



Marinate scallops in Makrut Lime Sea Salt, Aleppo, tequila and olive oil for 30 min. Heat a saute pan over medium-high heat. Add scallops with marinade. Cover and cook for 5 to 7 min. until scallops are just cooked through. Check scallops often so they don’t overcook; they’ll be done when they turn from translucent to opaque. Remove from heat and, using a slotted spoon, transfer scallops to serving plates. Stir in cold butter to liquid left in saucepan until a sauce forms. Rewarm over low heat if desired. Top scallops with sauce and serve.

I am unfamiliar with the lime salt which sounds great, but I adore Aleppo pepper. I use it on everything except dessert. I suggest ordering it in the 4 or 8 oz pkg if possible. It is that good. I also like cayenne pepper and spicy hot Turkish paprika. They all hit different parts of the tongue. Must now order the lime salt - yum!
