Pan seared scallops with perfectly golden brown charred and crunchy outside, bounchy and juicy meat inside will tickle your taste buds. Make sure you’ve got a “dry scallop” instead the ”wet scallop” for this recipe. Scallops which threated with sodium tripolyphosphate (STPP)  called “wet scallop” while the “dry scallops” didn’t.  STPP causes the scallops to absorb moisture prior to the freezing process, thereby getting a better price per unit of weight. It’s easy to diffrenciate the “dry” and “wet” scallop, “dry scallop” is usually got whitish creamy translucent color, while the “wet scallop” is usually got whitish opaque  color.

hokkaido scallops recipe how to seared scllops with brown butter perfect crustI’m using a Japanese Hokkaido scallops for this seared scallops recipe, the most popular pricey gourmet scallops from Hokkaido Island  in northen Japan. The Hokkaido scallops is tender, sweet, and less stringy compare to USA scallops or Callo de Hatcha scallops that i dehydrated and use for making Chinese Dried Scallops or Conpoy Rice Porridge Recipe.  I’m buying vaccum packed Hokkaido scallops with sashimi grade, which is ideal too for making scallops sashimi (raw sliced scallops). There are approximately 15 of these Japanese scallops in a 500 grams package, these Hokkaido scallops are the bigggest scallops i ever seen. I thawed the frozen scallops by put  the package in fridge overnight asthe package instruction. Raw Hokkaido scallops got white creamy beige or light blonde color and all the scallops meats color become white when cooked.

Pan seared scallops with brown butter and herbs in this recipe got all savoury goodneess. The herbs infused brown butter for searing the Hokkaido scallops got nutty aromas with herbs burst of refreshing flavour. I love brown butter, no one could ever regret the brown butter in any dish, especially when it’s using for cooking seafood like my recently Roasted Spinny Lobster with Garlic Brown Butter Recipe. Making brown butter is a little bit tricky, you should know that brown butter made from regular butter that heated until the butter’s milk content solidified and browned, a little longer cooking made the brown butter turn into black burn butter.  To making the herbs brown butter, cut up the butter into pieces and place in a heavy bottom skillet. Melt the butter on medium low heat and swirl it goodly, allow the butter to foam up and recede. Watch carefully. After a few minutes, the milk solids will form and sink to the bottom. Once the milk solids begin to turn brown caramel-colored, the butter will have a lovely nutty aroma and then you need to add herbs and olive oil to slow the cooking process a little bit and prevent the brown butter got burn.  Add your patted dry Hokkaido to herbs brown  butter sauce.  To perfectly seared the scallops,  do not overfilled the skillet to let some space beetween the scallops to let the steam escape. Flip the scallops once after the bottom side of the Hokkaido scallops turn brown and crusty, then let the other side browned too. You want the inside of your seared Hokkaido scallops medium rare when you remove it from the pan, the remaining heat continue to cooking it untill medium done.

seared scallops with balsamic vinegar reduction mushrooms soy sauce recipe

I served my seared Hokkaido scallops with herbs brown butter with balsamic reduction sauce, but not a  regular balsamic reduction. I add infused the balsamic reduction with flavour of caramelized onion and deglazed with mushooms light soy sauce. I found  a small bottle of ready to use mushrooms infused light soy sauce for steaming fish in chinese grogeries. To made balsamic and mushrooms soy sauce reduction add a tablespoon of oil in a sauce pan, sautee chopped onion until caramelized, then pour a half cup of balsamic vinegar and a half cup of mushrooms infused soy sauce, bring it to boil over medium heat then add half teaspoonfull of sugar.. Once the sauce boil, turn down the heat so that boil reduces to a simmer. Stir occasionally and allow to simmer until the vinegar and the soy sauce has reduced by at least half (thin consistency reduction) or more (thick syrupy consistency). Never increase the heat to fasten the reduction process, unless you want to be left with a stiff, hardened candy mess. I like my balsamic reduction very thin, so i can mix it with the remaining herbs brown butter for searing the Hokkaido scallops.

Scallop Morney

For making scallops mornay, choose the meaty scallops. Actually i purchase 12 live scallop for about 2 USD for each of it with a good expectation of meaty scallop muscle underneath the shell. Unfortunately i’ve got 1 ruined or dead scallop and rather small meat and shell ratio for the rest of it. . That’s why i use 2 scallops on each shell. You can see there’s  2 bulging scallop under the melted cheese on the photograph. Btw, if you like, you should keep the yellowish scallop roe becauce it’s edible too.

Succulent Scallop with Melted Mozarella Cheese and Fragrant Herbs

Homemade scallop mornay can use any cheese within the recipe, but i suggest you to use young cheese because it can melt easily during the baking process. Instead of using an oven, you can cooked the dish using a torch flame too. Just make sure you torched the scallop first, then add the  mozarella cheese  and torched it again to melt the cheese. Always boil the scallop shell prior to flame torching first to desinfected it whenever you’re not baked it
