Scallops, Whiskey, and Mint

Start your dinner party the right way with this scallop recipe, along with the classic cocktails to accompany this delicious appetizer. This winning dish is a sure bet — enjoy!

Directions

In a small bowl, combine the sugar, ground mixed peppercorns, and salt, to taste. Season the scallops with this mixture.

Heat the canola oil in a medium-sized sauté pan over high heat until almost smoking. Add the scallops. Once caramelized on one side, flip them and continue cooking until crispy golden brown on both sides. 

Deglaze with the whiskey off the heat, return the pan to the stove, and step back while the alcohol burns off. Slowly stir in the butter. When the butter has melted almost entirely, add the mint and blackberries.
