How to make Dijon-Orange Scallops

This is delicious and exceptionally easy to make. Makes great appetizers, hors d'oeuvres, or a meal all in itself. A quick note:  use only fresh scallops. Scallops that are sold frozen are typically soaked in a solution that enables them to freeze properly, yet unfortunately, make it extremely frustrating to sear. If you are forced to buy the scallops frozen, be prepared to spend alot of time pouring off excess liquid.
  1. In a large bowl, combine the mustard, marmalade, and lemon juice until thoroughly mixed.
  2. Toss the scallops in the Dijon-orange sauce and allow to marinate in the bowl for 30 minutes.
  3. Heat a large skillet or grill over medium heat and lightly oil with grapeseed oil or vegetable oil. Sear the scallops until golden brown on both sides.
  4. Enjoy immediately.
