Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • In a small skillet, heat oil over medium-high. Season scallops with salt and pepper; cook until browned and opaque throughout, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate; cover loosely with foil. Cut orange segments into 1/2-inch pieces.

  • Reduce heat to medium, add wine to skillet, and cook 30 seconds. Add butter and 3 tablespoons orange juice and cook, swirling, until sauce is thickened, 1 minute. Remove from heat and add chives and orange pieces. Season with salt and pepper and spoon over scallops and couscous.

Cook's Notes
