Seared Sea Scallop and Salmon Caviar
For a luxurious treat try our favorite seared sea scallops and salmon caviar recipe using the large succulent roe of Alaskan Salmon Caviar. This salmon caviar recipe calls for the most prized Chum or keta salmon roe because it plays best with the mild, clean flavor of the sea scallop. The brilliant range of red to orange hue of salmon caviar also add visual appeal and a semblance of complexity to easy caviar recipes. This recipe serves two.
8 Sea Scallops patted dry
1 tablespoon Light olive oil
Salt and pepper
1 – 2 oz. Alaskan Salmon Caviar
Floral Garnish of your choice
Sprinkle salt and pepper on scallops. Lightly heat olive oil in a frying pan. Sear scallops on both sides for approximately a minute and a half or until lightly brown and translucent in the center.
Place seared scallops on serving plates. Top with salmon roe and edible flower petals. You can also substitute with Tobiko Flying Fish Roe which has the same brilliant orange color and a hint sweeter in flavor than salmon roe caviar.
