Caramelized Scallops in a Lemony White Wine Sauce

January 2, 2014

The best thing about caramelizing proteins is the delicious pan sauce you can make with all the sweet, crunchy bits left on the bottom of the pan! Just add a little liquid, some alcohol and a smattering of fresh herbs, like in this recipe for caramelized scallops with white wine sauce from Confections of a Foodie Bride.
