The Top Ten Dishes of 2009 #6: Seared Scallop in Charmoula Broth at Fond

Share on Nextdoor

A single plump scallop, its top seared chestnut brown, was nestled among thickly sliced carrot. At tableside a server poured a vegetable broth spiked with the North African condiment charmoula (a blend of olive oil, garlic, citrus juice, parsley and/or cilantro, cumin and other spices). I gave in and took a bite. The flavor was wonderful, the citric flavors of the charmoula broth an ideal foil for the buttery, briny mollusk.
