One of us doesn't care for scallops as much as I do, so I don't prepare them very often... however THIS recipe received thumbs up, even from the one who doesn't normally care for scallops. I love when that happens, don't you?! :)
Prepared this way they make a perfect appetizer or starter with a glass of dry sherry, wine of your choice ~ or any cold drink for that matter!
You can shallow-fry the wontons in advance, then just sear the scallops in a little olive oil, butter and lemon zest. To assemble, sprinkle a few slivers of scallions on each wonton, top with a scallop, drizzle with a little of the pan juices and sprinkle with lemon zest.
The delicate crunch of the crispy wonton contrasts perfectly with the mild, tender scallop while the scallion and lemon zest provide the a delightful flavor spike.
I will certainly make these again ~ they are delicious! If you try them, I hope you like them as well.
