Sauteed Scallops With Saffron Corn Sauce

  • Yield: 4 main-course servings



  • Prepare the Saffron Corn Sauce, and set aside.
  • Sprinkle the scallops on both sides with the Creole Seasoning and use your hands to coat them thoroughly.
  • Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. When the oil is hot, add the scallops and sautÈ until golden brown, for about 2 minutes on each side (3 minutes if theyíre very large).
  • To serve, reheat the Saffron Corn Sauce over low heat (donít bring to a boil; just heat it through). Pour 1/2 cup of the sauce (be sure to spoon some corn out with the sauce) onto each of 4 dinner plates. Arrange 5 scallops on each. Sprinkle with 1 tablespoon of the green onions.
