Sous Vide Scallops with Lemon Herb Salsa Verde

Anova Culinary

Mmm, Scallops! Sea Scallops are, yet, another dish which is 100% better when cooked via Sous Vide. Perfectly tender on the inside with a slight crisp sear on the outside. I swear, you could cut these with the simple touch of your finger. 123.8 degree F bath for 30 minutes with a brief 45 second sear on each side in the Cast Iron Skillet is all it takes to reach sheer Scallop Bliss.
