Today Barbara, my better half and founder of The Gluten Free Homestead has a recipe for you. Thanks to Barbara for sharing this incredible recipe.
Pan-seared scallops with beurre blanc sauce is an excellent choice when you want to prepare a special, scrumptious, low-carb meal. If you’re following a low-carb diet, you will find that low carb, gluten-free meals can still be delicious and exciting. Yay!
Beurre blanc is a French warm butter sauce that’s perfect with scallops or any type of fish. You will love how it compliments the mild seafood flavor of the fluffy, seared scallops.
With very little effort, this recipe delivers a delightful meal. And you can impress your friends and family by making a classic French dish.
Choose Dry Scallops
Here’s a tip when choosing your scallops. Look for “dry” sea scallops, not “soaked” scallops. “Soaked” scallops have been treated in a bath of water and chemical preservatives. When you try to sear them, the water will be released, and they’ll be difficult to brown. They can also be tough to eat.
Serve these scallops over seasoned cauliflower rice which is a healthy low carb alternative to regular rice. It will make your scallops look especially beautiful when plated. You can get my seasoned cauliflower rice recipe here. Then pour warm sauce over the scallops and savor every bite.
If you want a meal that’s special (I’m thinking date night) but at the same time, low stress and low-carb, pan-seared scallops with beurre blanc sauce are for you. Get the recipe and more cooking tips at The Gluten Free Homestead.
Have a happy, healthy day.
