Thai Lemongrass Scallops

My Adaptation: I’m really into “Asian” flavors and I’ve been wanting to make a Thai Coconut Sauce for a while. I wanted a bright, fresh dish that raised the bar on a “white” scallop in a light sauce. Shelling peas, Orange Cauliflower & Sweet Corn were the “pop” I needed to make a delicious dish beautiful. Oh and I wanted to be all fancy and pour my sauce a la minute. *Note to self, pouring sauce & Instagram Video-ing at the same time is not a good idea.
My Inspiration: As a birthday gift, David and I told our friend Jamie that we would cook for him and his wife Lexi. I asked him for a week straight what he wanted. In the end (4pm day of), he told me to choose. The link for the recipe happened to be on one of my internet tabs and that was going to be our dinner! Of course, going to the Union Square Green Market realized conceptualized the dish!
The best part of this dish is the smell of this fragrant broth!
I tried to capture pouring the sauce a la minute! There is a great video on instagram.
Here is a before-and-after shot!
