This is another wonderful and easy dish to make. Scallops with Apple Pan Sauce can be served as a starter or as an accompanying dish to risotto, couscous and vegetables.
I was a little disappointed with the apple sauce when I tasted it after cooking. It wasn't that great, a little sourish but over the scallops, it was delicious. The pea shoots works well too as an accent to the dish. Overall, this dish is great to serve for a dinner party which you can prepare the sauce in advance. The scallops just take a minute to sear on each side. Fast, Fresh and Simple.
Scallops with Apple Pan Sauce
2 Granny Smith apples
2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
2 tbsp olive oil
12 large sea scallops, side muscle removed (frozen)
kosher salt, freshly ground pepper
1 tbsp unsalted butter
1/4 cup hearty sprouts

God can bring blessings through those who know that life's goal is character, not comfort but hope.
Not only so, but we also glory in our sufferings,because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. And hope does not put us to shame, because God's love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us. Romans 5:3-5
