Preparation

Roasted Corn, Lime and Coriander Creamy Succotash:

Preheat broiler. On a baking sheet, toss corn with 1 tbsp (15 mL) melted butter. Broil 5 minutes or until corn begins to blacken; stirring twice. Set aside.

In large skillet, over medium heat, melt remaining butter. Add onion, garlic and peppers; sauté for 3 minutes or until vegetables soften. Stir in corn, tomatoes, avocado and lime juice; sauté 2 minutes. Stir in tequila and sauté for 3 minutes or until most of the liquid has evaporated. Add cream and bring to a simmer.

Reduce heat and simmer, stirring often, for about 5 minutes, until sauce is slightly thickened. Stir in coriander, basil, chili flakes and season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve with Crispy Chili and Panko Crusted Scallops.

Crispy Chili and Panko Crusted Scallops:

In a shallow dish, place flour. In another shallow dish; whisk milk and egg. In another shallow dish, combine bread crumbs, parsley and chili flakes; season to taste with salt and freshly ground black pepper.

Coat scallops in flour, then into the milk mixture and then into the bread crumb mixture; pressing to coat.

In a large skillet, heat half of the oil over medium heat. Add half the scallops and cook for about 5 minutes or until golden and opaque in the center; turning once. Drain on paper towels. Repeat with remaining oil and scallops.
