Where isn't much that comes out of the ocean that equals flavorful and succulent sea scallops. For this culinary creation, it's crucial you purchase the freshest seafood possible to ensure the sweet and delectable flavor this jewel of the sea is famous for.
It's also important you don't overcook the scallops because they can easily become dry and tough. You'll know they're ready to serve when the translucent appearance turns opaque. I chose to plate this sweet treat with a combination of sweet and Idaho potatoes and a touch of fresh spinach, but you can substitute with rice or steamed vegetables. This eclectic dish not only looks good, but the fusion of fresh scallop, sweet glaze, spicy habanero peppers and candied orange zest results in an exciting presentation that's perfect for the holidays.
