Seared Scallops with black bean cilantro rice and roasted asparagus, drizzled with honey sriracha glaze

GO WILD™ Sea Scallops are harvested from rugged North Atlantic waters, where strong currents force the scallop muscle to work harder to keep its shell closed. The result? Firm meat that's a joy to cook with—and wonderfully sweet to eat!

This GO WILD™ Creation pairs the world's best sea scallops with asparagus spears and black bean cilantro rice, over which a honey sriracha glaze is drizzled. Once you've got the rice dish well on its way, preheat a non-stick skillet on medium-high. Then let it thoroughly heat so that the scallops make a distinct sizzle when placed in the pan. That's the secret to getting a caramelized crust, which seals in the tender sweet flavor of the scallop. The glaze gives the dish a tangy zing with a touch of added sweetness from the honey.
