Lime Seared Scallops

 

Lime Seared Scallops

If you'd rather not use tequila, substitute 1 tbsp. orange juice instead.

 

Makes: 2 servings

2 tbsp. lime juice
1 tbsp. tequila
1/4 tsp. hot sauce
2 tsp. olive oil
2 tsp. chopped fresh cilantro
1 clove garlic, chopped
1/4 tsp. salt
8 oz. scallops
Cooking spray

Combine all ingredients except scallops in a small bowl, stirring to combine. Add scallops and marinate in the refrigerator 15 to 20 minutes.

Remove scallops from marinade, reserving 2 tablespoons of the liquid. Heat a large skillet coated with cooking spray over medium-high heat; add the scallops and cook 1-2 minutes on each side or until opaque and firm. Add remaining 2 tablespoons of marinade to the pan and cook and additional 1 minute or until bubbling.
