Seared Scallops with Corn Cream



Ingredients :

  • 2 ears fresh white corn
  • kernels cut from cob
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • salt to taste
  • 1 pinch cayenne pepper
  • 12 large sea scallops
  • rinsed and patted dry
  • 1 red Fresno pepper
  • thinly sliced
  • 2 teaspoons canola oil
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon smoked paprika
  • or to taste
  • 1 splash water
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • or more to taste
  • ½ lemon
  • juiced
  • ¼ cup radish sprouts
  • or to taste
  • Methods :

  • Stir corn kernels, chicken broth, 2 tablespoons butter, cayenne pepper, and salt together in a saucepan; bring to a simmer, reduce heat to medium-low, and cook until corn is tender, about 5 minutes.
  • Pour corn mixture into a blender no more than half full. Cover and hold lid down; pulse a few times before leaving on to blend. Puree in batches until smooth. Pour pureed corn mixture through a fine-mesh strainer into a saucepan. Season with salt to taste.
  • Toss scallops, Fresno pepper, canola oil, kosher salt, and smoked paprika in a bowl until scallops are completely coated. Separate pepper slices from scallops.
  • Heat a large heavy skillet over high heat until very hot, about 5 minutes. Cook scallops in hot skillet until browned on one side, about 3 minutes. Turn and cook on the other side until cooked through, about 3 minutes more. Cook and stir sliced peppers on the side of the skillet while the scallops are cooking.
  • Remove skillet from heat; transfer scallops to a plate, leaving peppers in hot skillet. Stir water and 1 tablespoon butter into peppers until butter melts. Drizzle lemon juice over peppers; stir to glaze peppers completely.
  • Divide corn cream between four bowls. Place 3 scallops over corn puree and top with glazed peppers. Garnish with radish sprouts.
