Sounds tasty! I love cooking, as well, and am happy to see this thread back.
I just ended a one year experiment with being a vegetarian: Conclusion: It was hard, and I wasn't getting enough protein. I don't eat a ton of meat, but damn, it's like a whole new vista is open, again!
Last week, I made sea scallops, and they turned out really tasty:
I heated olive oil to a very high temp in a skillet, tossed in the scallops, let them cook to about halfway, flipped them, then added a dash of potato vodka which flamed up, and sorta caramelized them. Took maybe 3 minutes, tops.
I then served them on plated drizzled with a reduction of lime and fennel, with a bit of honey and water, to balance the acidity/consistency, that I made earlier, and yum, yum! Was one of those ideas I had that seemed like it would work, and did...this is not always the case.
Gordon Ramsey, watch out!
