Prep Time 5 MIN

Cook Time 12 MIN

Serves 4

Ingredients :

  • 4 tsp (20 mL) canola oil
  • 1  bulb fennel, trimmed and cut lengthwise into thin slices
  • 2/3 cup (150 mL) VH® Teriyaki Cooking Sauce
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) grated orange zest
  • 1 bunch (5 oz) baby spinach, trimmed
  • 1 lb (500 g) sea scallops, dried 
  • 2 Blood Oranges, segmented

Directions :

  1. Heat half of oil in large non-stick skillet, set over medium-high heat. Add fennel; stir-fry for 2 minutes. Add 1/4 cup (60 mL) VH® Teriyaki Cooking Sauce and orange zest. Cook, stirring, until fennel is just tender, 2 to 3 minutes.
  2. Stir in spinach; cook, stirring, just until spinach wilts, about 1 minute. Transfer mixture to plate. Keep warm.
  3. Brush scallops with remaining VH® Teriyaki Cooking Sauce. Heat remaining oil in same skillet. Add scallops; cook for 3 minutes. Gently turn scallops over; cook until firm to the touch, 1 to 2 minutes. 
  4. Divide fennel mixture among 4 plates. Top evenly with scallops. Pour any remaining juices over.
  5. Garnish plate with 2 to 3 orange segments.

When buying sea scallops, look for an off white creamy colour and a fresh sea scent. Ask your local grocery store purveyor or fishmonger if they have dry scallops, which means the scallops that have not been treated with any preservatives.
