Low carb recipe for Lime-Basted Scallops which belongs to the Fish and Seafood recipe category.

Ingredients Needed

  1. 24 ounces (680 g) sea scallops
  2. cup (60 ml) lime juice
  3. 3 tablespoons (42 g) butter
  4. 2 cloves garlic
  5. Guar or xanthan
  6. cup (16 g) chopped fresh cilantro

Cooking Instructions

Put the lime juice, butter, and garlic in a slow cooker.

Cover the slow cooker, set it to high, and let it cook for 30 minutes.

Uncover the slow cooker and stir the butter, lime juice, and garlic together.

Now add the scallops, stirring them around to coat them with the sauce.

Spread them in a single layer on the bottom of the slow cooker.

(If the sauce seems to pool in one or two areas, try to cluster the scallops there.

In my pot, the sauce liked to stay around the edges.

) Re-cover the pot, set it to high, and let it cook for 45 minutes.

When the time's up, remove the scallops to serving plates.

Thicken the pot liquid just a tiny bit with guar or xanthan and spoon the sauce over the scallops.

Top each serving with 1 tablespoon (4 g) of cilantro.
