Chimichurri is a thick herb sauce commonly made with parsley and oregano, and served with grilled meat in Argentina. Mint gives this version a more delicate taste, making it perfect for seafood. Serve over a bed of rice to soak up the flavorful sauce.
1 1/2 cups loosely packed fresh mint leaves
3/4 cup sliced green onions
2 tablespoons water
1 1/2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
1 tablespoon honey
1 teaspoon minced seeded serrano chile
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 garlic clove
3 tablespoons yellow cornmeal
1 1/2 pounds sea scallops
1 tablespoon olive oil
Green onion strips (optional)
How to Make It
Place first 9 ingredients in a food processor; process until finely chopped. Set aside.
Place cornmeal in a shallow dish. Dredge scallops in cornmeal. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add scallops; cook 3 minutes on each side or until done. Serve with chimichurri, and garnish with onion strips, if desired.
