Curry Dusted Scallops with Pea Puree

Curry Dusted Scallops with Pea Puree
Makes 4 servings
Level of Difficulty: Easy
Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: 15 minutes
Notes: The bright flavours of curry and lime are a perfect accompaniment to the scallops.

Ingredients:
1 (10-ounce) package frozen baby peas (not thawed)
65ml (1/4 cup) water
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
2 green onions, chopped
1 to 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
2 teaspoons curry powder
750g (1 1/2 pounds) sea scallops, tough ligament removed from side of each (about 3 per person)
1 tablespoon vegetable oil

Instructions:

Cook peas on stovetop with water according to package directions (do not drain). Pulse in a food processor with cooking water, butter, green onions, lime juice (to taste), and 1/4 teaspoon salt to a coarse purée. Adjust seasoning to your taste.

Stir together curry powder and 1/2 teaspoon each of salt and pepper on a plate. Pat scallops dry and coat all over with curry mixture using your fingers to adhere seasoning onto scallops.

Heat oil in a large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat until hot, then sauté scallops in 2 batches, turning once, until browned and just cooked through, about 4 minutes per batch. Serve scallops over pea purée.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
