Sexy Scallop Martinis

These are a fabulous appetizer served in martini glasses. You can, if you wish, eat the scallops then drink the spicy vodka.

 

  • 1/2 cup vodka
  • 1/4 cup lime juice
  • 2 tsp. jalapeno pepper, chopped
  • 12 large scallops
  • salt and ground pepper
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped red bell pepper
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped yellow bell pepper
  • 1 green onion, finely chopped
  • 4 sprigs of coriander

Combine vodka, lime juice and jalapeno pepper in a bowl.

Heat oil in a skillet over high heat and after seasoning the scallops with a pinch of salt and pepper, place in the skillet. Sear for about 2 minutes per side or until browned on the outside but still raw in the center.

Place the scallops on a board and cut into quarters. Add to the vodka mixture. Let marinate for 4 hours in the refrigerator, stirring to coat all sides.

Stir in the peppers and green onion.

Divide between the scallop mixture in 4 martini glasses, adding some of the marinade. Garnish with the coriander. Serve immediately.
