Scallops are sautded in hot car, ok= 0il, which can take the heat. (NAPS)--Sautding, the number one cooking method in America, and canola oil offer a passport to success with global cuisines. =The word 'saute' comes from the French verb mean- ing ~;o jump,' so the oil needs to be hot enough that the food does not stick to the pan but jumps around," says culinary expert Tori Ritchie in a new =Sautd Today" series of CanolaInfo recipes and videos involving sauteing, sweating and sweetening for a range of flavors and textures. "Canola oil is perfect for sautding because it's versatile, heat~tol- erant and heart-healthy." Sear scallops in canola oil in this simple French santd. Tip: Pat scallops dry before adding to the pan or they won't sear correctly. o Sautded Scallops with Peas in Lemon- Tarragon Sauce Serves 4 12 sea scallops (about 14 oz.) 2 Tbsp canola oil 1 small shallot, minced 1 cup top-quality, low-sodlum chicken or vegetable broth 1 lb. fresh peas, shelled, or I cup frozen peas (thawed) 2 Tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice, preferably Meyer lemon 1 Tbsp chopped fresh tarragon ~/, tsp freshly ground pepper 1. Rinse scallops, then pat dry with paper towels. Pull off the opaque mus- cle or "foot" on the side of each scallop (if it is there). 2, In a 10-;nch saut~ pan, warm canola oil over medium-high heat. Add scallops and sear until golden brown on each side, turning once, about 3 minutes total. Transfer scallops to a plate and set aside. 3. Add shallots to pan and saut~ until golden, about 30 second~ Pour in broth and let liquid come to a boil; stir in fresh peas, if using. Cover pan and simmer until peas are just tender, about 3 minutes. Stir in lemon juice and tar- ragon. Return scallops to pan (ff using thawed frez peas, add them now), cover and cook until scagops are cooked through, about 2 minutes. Serve immedi- ately, spooning peas and sauce over and around scallops. Season to taste with pepper. For more "Sautd Today" recipes and videos, visit canolainfo.org.
