Looking forward to hearing about your seafood dinner, dragnlaw!
It's tough to thoroughly dry marinated seafood, though. That's why I typically don't marinate it; I just add seasonings and/or make a flavorful sauce.

Oh, I didn't see where she marinated them. I just saw where she was looking for marinades. Yes, I wouldn't try to dry marinated scallops, either. I love them dry as possible, then pan seared or grilled to get that nice crust, then topped with a little butter and s and p. But there are so many ways to enjoy those little darlings. YUM

I was assuming since she was looking that that's what she did, but I could be wrong

Yeah, seared nice and brown is my favorite way to enjoy them, too

I can see that I'm going to be looking up seafood thread ideas here in the next day or two.

and I have a few of them!

So I have downloaded all my pics.

I had never used this marinade before but MAN - this is first class - Company coming - Summer perfect - light and fresh!

Yes, I always dry my frozen 'whatever's' before frying, but reminders are never amiss!

This marinade consists of almost all the common citrus family. Grapefruit, Orange, Lemon (oops no lime) a tiny bit of soy, OO, balsamic vinegar, and pink peppercorns. (I added a tiny pinch of pepperocini)

So I also added some (pink) grapefruit and orange sections to the plate - perfect touch, ahem

The marinade recipe was for 1 lb. of scallops. I made the entire amount even thou I was only doing a serving for one. (I'll find something for it hopefully) It was too difficult to try to scale it down.


that's a shrimp, scallop, 2 shrimp, broken scallop, shrimp
I only had 3 scallops and one was broken....

Baste with the marinade, flip and baste again.

Plate with mushroom slices, citrus sections, shrimp 'n scallops, drizzle with some extra marinade...


and .... BURP

Looked lovely, if only briefly.
