Smoky seared scallops with creamy mushrooms & leeks

Recipe Ingredients for Smoky seared scallops with creamy mushrooms & leeks

1/2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil, divided
1/2 tbsp butter
10 ounces crimini mushrooms, sliced
2 cups thinly sliced leeks, white and light green parts only
1/2 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
2 tbsp reduced-sodium chicken broth
1/4 cup white wine
5 tablespoons reduced-fat sour cream
1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
1/2 teaspoon salt, divided
1/4 teaspoon smoked paprika
1 Freshly ground pepper to taste
1/2 pound sea scallops

Recipe Directions for Smoky seared scallops with creamy mushrooms & leeks

  1. Boil water for pasta

  2. Heat 2 teaspoons oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add mushrooms; cook, stirring occasionally, until they begin to give off liquid, about 3 minutes. Stir in rinsed leeks; cook, adjusting heat to prevent scorching, until the vegetables are very tender and the leeks are starting to brown, about 8 minutes.

  3. Add broth and vinegar; cook until reduced and thickened, about 30 seconds. Remove from the heat and stir in sour cream, parsley, teaspoon salt and pepper to taste. Cover and set aside.

  4. Cook pasta

  5. Pat scallops dry and sprinkle with the smoked paprika, remaining teaspoon salt, and a little fresh pepper. Heat the remaining 2 teaspoons oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the scallops and cook until golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes per side.

  6. Place some of the leek-mushroom mixture on each plate and top with scallops. Serve with pasta
