Recipe Ingredients for scallop piccata

1 pound dry sea scallops, tough muscle removed
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1 cup vegetable broth
2 teaspoons cornstarch
1/4 cup chopped garlic
3 tablespoons lemon juice
1 tablespoon capers, rinsed and chopped
2 teaspoons Light Buttery Spread with Flax Oil
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley

Recipe Directions for scallop piccata

  1. Sprinkle scallops on both sides with salt and pepper. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to medium and add the scallops; cook, turning once, until browned on both sides, about 6 minutes total. Transfer to a plate.

  2. Whisk wine, clam juice and cornstarch in a small bowl until smooth.

  3. Cook garlic in the pan over medium-high heat, stirring often, until softened, 1 to 2 minutes. Add the wine mixture; bring to a boil and cook until thickened, about 2 minutes. Stir in lemon juice, capers and butter; cook until the butter melts, 1 to 2 minutes.

  4. Return the scallops to the pan, add the pasta and cook, stirring gently, until heated through and coated with the sauce, about 1 minute. Stir in parsley and serve immediately.
