Seared Scallops with Lemon Orzo recipe
Cooking Light, July 2007

This was pretty simple and good. I splurged this week and bought some frozen sea scallops from BJs weekend before last. YUM!

The lemon orzo was interesting. It was definitely lemon-y! It was simple and I’m not quite sure what the chives add to the dish. I would have thought oregano or something like that. Maybe sage? Chives? I didn’t get the chives.

The scallops are good enough on their own and this orzo is just a nice accompaniment to the scallops. Be careful when cooking the scallops. To get a nice sear you really need to heat the pan up before putting them in the pan. Make sure they’re not watery when they thaw. I put some paper towlels in the container when I thawed them in the fridge. It seemed to help. I don’t know if I’ll make this again or not. It was good, but not really note worthy. I don’t know.
