Scallops with Caramel-Orange Sauce & Salted Butter Break-Ups - FFWD

I have been out of town so am posting two items, late, for FFWD. The scallops in the Scallops with Caramel-Orange Sauce were delicious, however, I ruined the sauce BOTH times that I made it. I started out by making the sauce ahead of time. On reheating it, I burned it. So, I  made it again and forgot the butter so the sauce was bitter. I didn't even realize I forgot the butter until I was writing this post! For such an easy dinner, I really was having an off night. Thankfully, my husband cooked the scallops - and perfectly so. I must try this again.

A couple of weeks ago, we absolutely loved the Salted Butter Break-Ups. This is a huge shortbread cookie. What's not to love? Easy to make and I substituted sprouted whole spelt flour for 3/4 cup of the all-purpose flour and it turned out great!


  1. Sorry about the sauce. Sometimes things just don't work out. I did
    not even try the recipe because we do not like scallops. Tricia tested the
    recipe and her boys enjoyed them. Your photos look good, and the
    butter break-ups really look yummy.

  2. I preferred the scallops without the sauce, actually. My favorite part of this recipe was learning to sear those scallop, perfectly. Nice job.

  3. I'm sorry your sauce didn't turn out - we really liked it. It's worth trying again some time.

    The salted butter break-ups are wonderful. Yours look great.

  4. Sorry you had a tough time. Definitely give it a go again when you are having a "good" kitchen day... Although, the scallop technique alone was worth it for this dish!

  5. Sorry to hear about the sauce but please try it again, I really liked it :)

  6. Thanks for visiting, everyone! I will try the sauce again :)

    I've been under the weather all week so quinoa with dried fruits wasn't going to happen here. I'm looking forward to reading all about your quinoa salads, though!
