IC, I've been making a scallop entree at work, pan-seared, flip them once, up in the salamander to cook a bit more, when they're about "medium", pull them out, remove to a small plate and keep warm (carry-over cooking will finish them), and deglaze the cooking pan with a shot of white wine, then add in a bacon/veloute roux-thickened sauce. Served over ham grits with peas scattered over the grits, then sauce over the peas and grits.

Have you thought about pan-roasting the corn to help bring out the natural sugars? It might add a color contrast and textural difference as well.

Yeah, I tried a version to where I caramelized the corn when sauteeing and it was good, but it overpowered the sauce and all you tasted was the caramelized corn.

But I was thinking of a dish to utilize the caramelized corn in. I have a couple of ideas but haven't gotten a chance to try them out yet.

The only scallops available to me are flash frozen ... are they a good option or a "don't bother" ... especially the baby bay scallops? Saw them at Sam's yesterday and wondered. What should I be looking for?
