Red Curry Scallops with Lemon Grass
These Red Curry Scallops with lemon grass are a flavorful, 15-minute seafood dinner for two. The heat from the red curry paste is a perfect match with the sweet scallops and the coconut cream adds a rich creaminess that helps tame the heat from the red curry and chiles. Lemon grass adds a bright, fresh note to the dish. Serve in food-safe scallop shells for an elegant finish.
Melt butter in a skillet over medium-high heat; add shallots and sauté until starting to brown. Add lemon grass and pepper flakes; sauté until lemon grass softens, 3 minutes.
Stir in coconut cream, curry paste, and lemon juice; boil sauce until slightly thickened, 2–3 minutes.
Heat oil in a cast-iron or nonstick skillet over high until shimmering. Add scallops and sear until browned, 3 minutes; flip and cook until firm, but not solid to the touch, 2 minutes more.
Divide scallops between two plates. Pour sauce over scallops, and top with zest, chiles, and cilantro.
