Lime and Chipotle Scallops

Lime and Chipotle Scallops

recipe ingredients
1 pound sea or bay scallops
1 teaspoon olive oil
1/2 cup minced shallots
1/2 teaspoon minced canned chipotle chilies in adobado
1/2 cup lime juice
1/2 cup white distilled vinegar
1/2 pound jicama
1/2 cup minced fresh cilantro
Lime halves

recipe directions
Salt and pepper Rinse scallops and drain on paper towels. If scallops are more than 1/2 inch thick, cut in half to make thinner rounds. In a 10- to 12-inch frying pan over medium heat, stir oil, shallots, and chipotles until shallots are limp, about 3 minutes. Stir in lime juice, vinegar, and 1/2 cup water; bring to a boil over high heat. Add scallops in a single layer; reduce heat, cover, and simmer just until opaque but still moist-looking in center (cut to test), about 2 minutes. With a slotted spoon, transfer scallops to a bowl. Boil liquid over high heat, uncovered, until reduced to 1 cup; pour over scallops and chill until cool, at least 1 1/2 hours or up to 8 hours. Meanwhile, peel jicama, rinse well, and cut into 1/4-inch-thick matchsticks. Gently mix jicama with scallops and spoon into shallow bowls, drizzle with liquid. Garnish with cilantro and lime halves. Add salt and pepper to taste.

    We served this recipe warm, and it was very tasty that way. I’m sure it would be great in the hot summers served chilled as well.
