Baking is science and I don't like formulas, but cooking is art and anything goes...and the simpler the better. It's all about less time at the stove and more time at the table. With a forty year passion for food I'm excited to share what I do in the kitchen nearly every day.

Seared Sea Scallops Gremolata

Gremolata is a simple mixture of lemon zest, garlic, and parsley that adds a lot of flavor with very little effort. It traditionally accompanies veal osso bucco but works equally well on grilled chicken, stews, and seared scallops.

The gremolata can be made up to five hours beforehand by finely mincing together the peel of half a lemon, three garlic cloves, and a handful of parsley leaves. Then it’s just a matter of heating your heaviest pan over high heat for several minutes, salt and peppering your scallops, and searing them for a couple of minutes on each side. Serve with the gremolata and a squeeze of lemon juice.
