This week's French Friday's with Dorie recipe is scallops with caramel-orange sauce. This was my first time ever cooking scallops. I'll admit, I was a bit nervous.
The recipe is actually quite simple. It begins with the caramel-orange sauce. The caramel sauce is made my cooking sugar down. Here's a picture of me testing the color of the caramel sauce on a plate. I was looking for a deep caramel color. I then added the white wine and juiced orange and cooked the sauce down. I think I need a bit more practice with reductions. It tasted great but I sense it should have thickened more.
I liked the meal a lot but I'm not sure I'll be making scallops at home a ton so I'm not sure I'd repeat the dish, but it was a good meal!
