Ingredients

  • 4 baby red beets, tops removed and washed
  • 4 tablespoons clementine marmalade (regular orange marmalade can be substituted)
  • 4 tablespoons coconut milk
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • Salt
  • Cayenne pepper
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 4 sprigs thyme
  • 16 scallops

Method

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Step 2

Place the beets in a pan and roast in the oven until very soft, about 25 minutes. Remove from the oven and set aside until cool enough to handle. Cut beets into 1-inch long batonets, or a thick julienne.

Step 3

In a saucepan over medium heat, combine the marmalade and coconut milk. Cook until reduced by half, it should be thick enough to coat a spoon. Finish the sauce by whisking in the butter, salt, and cayenne pepper. Set aside and keep warm.

Step 4

In a saute pan, over high heat, add the olive oil, garlic, and thyme and heat. Add the scallops to the oil and pan sear until golden brown on both sides.

Step 5

Place the beets on a plate and place 4 scallops on top. Cover the scallops with a thin, even layer of the sauce.
