    1 (12-oz.) pkg. Bon Cuisine frozen wild North Atlantic sea scallops (10 to 20 ct.), thawed
    1 ½ tbsp. Tbsp. fresh lemon juice
    Finely ground Hy-Vee sea salt
    Finely ground Hy-Vee black pepper
    2 tsp. Hy-Vee finely shredded Parmesan cheese
    1 tbsp. Hy-Vee salted butter
    ¼ c. Gustare Vita hollandaise sauce, warmed
    6 tsp. crème fraîche
    4 tsp. black caviar
    4 to 5 tsp. Fish Market smoked Alaska sockeye salmon
    Fresh dill, for garnish
    Gustare Vita capers, drained; for garnish

    Things To Grab

    • Small rimmed baking pan
    • Parchment paper
    • Hy-Vee vegetable oil nonstick spray
    • Paper towels
    • Spatula
    • Large nonstick skillet
    • Small spoon


    1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line a small rimmed baking pan with parchment paper; spray with nonstick spray.

    2. Pat scallops dry with paper towels. Drizzle both sides with lemon juice; lightly sprinkle with salt and pepper. Let stand at room temperature for 10 to 15 minutes.

    3. Meanwhile, place 2 small piles, 1 tsp. each, of Parmesan cheese on prepared baking pan. Bake for 5 to 7 minutes or until cheese is melted and crisp; cool slightly and break into pieces.

    4. Melt butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add scallops; cook for 4 to 5 minutes or until scallops reach 145 degrees, turning halfway through.

    5. To serve, place a smeared streak of hollandaise sauce on the bottom of each small serving plate; place scallops on top. Top scallops with crème fraiche, Parmesan crisps and either caviar or salmon. Garnish with dill and capers, if desired.
