“Scallops are one of the most delicious foods if seared properly, and the addition of peppers and onions complements them quite well. Serve with couscous or rice for a delicious meal.” - by Roderic Rinehart
Original recipe yields 4 servings
- Heat the olive oil and minced anchovies in a large skillet over medium-high heat, stirring as the oil heats to dissolve the anchovies. Once the anchovies are sizzling, add the sea scallops, and cook without moving the scallops for 2 minutes.
- Meanwhile, toss the bell peppers, onion, garlic, lime zest and lemon zest in a bowl; season to taste with salt and pepper. Sprinkle the pepper mixture onto the scallops, and continue cooking a few more minutes until the scallops have browned on one side. Flip the scallops over, stir the pepper mixture, and continue cooking until the scallops have browned on the other side, 4 to 5 minutes. Garnish with parsley sprigs to serve.

We prepared it just as written, and it was fantastic - I was leary of the anchovies but they deepened the flavor without overpowering the..." See more scallops at all. The one issue we had with the recipe is that if prepared as written, the scallops are not necessarily seared on both sides because the water from the peppers prevents the browning of the second side. Next time we might try searing both sides before adding the peppers, maybe even removing the scallops once cooked and then adding the pepper mixture, then mixing it all together at the end."
"Restaurant quality! I followed the advice of a few others and sauteed my vegetables in olive oil first and then removed them from the pan. Then I added the anchovies in the oil and cooked them down,..." See more then cooked the scallops so they could brown. Then I added the cooked vegetables (so the scallops didn't overcook). I served them with Rachel Ray's recipe for Lemon Spaghetti and it was amazing!!"
