twice-flavored scallops with lemon "goop"

I made these Twice-Flavored Scallops with Lemon “Goop” way back in April 2020. Not sure why I chose to make them then…maybe I just wanted something nice that kind of reminded me of restaurant food when there were no restaurants open to go to. The first flavoring involves marinating sea scallops in a flavored soy sauce mix. After they are seared off in a hot skillet, they get their second flavoring– a cooked down lemon jam that Dorie calls “goop.” It’s sweet, sour and tart and kind of preserved lemon-like. (A by-product of the goop is the leftover cooking syrup, which kept forever and made a very good add to salad dressings.) The marinated scallops with little ploops of goop were really tasty. It’s been a few years, so could be time to make them again, or maybe use a different fish as Dorie suggests in her Playing Around notes.

For the recipe, see Everyday Dorie by Dorie Greenspan, and head over to Cook the Book Fridays to see how the group liked this one.

  1. It looks like a restaurant quality meal. I am still trying to source scallops but may switch to salmon.

  2. It definitely looks like a restaurant meal! Your scallops look delicious and your goop turned out much better than mine…although I see that yours is a thicker consistency than I was thinking I should have had…I thought more like a glaze. Maybe mine wasn’t so bad hahaha. Reading this post just takes you back to that time of such great uncertainty. I am so glad we all stuck together and continued to bake/cook with whatever we could find in the stores.
