Seared Scallops on Braised Wild Mushrooms

Sea Scallops are one of my favorite foods, definitely my favorite sea food. I saw this recipe and thought it sounded really interesting – not your typical scallop entree.

I had the “seafood guy” dry pack the scallops. We purchased them once, so water logged that they didn’t sear properly. Read up on it and it’s a thing to avoid and dry packing is the way to do it so they don’t sit in water. I also pat them dry with a paper towel prior to prep.

The recipe called for watercress which I really enjoyed with it. Laurie preferred arugula. This was a really great meal. Something I’d order at a restaurant, and similar to a restaurant, I probably would try something different next time. however, it was really tasty and fun to try something different.
