  1. Heat a large skillet over high heat. Mix orange juice, mustard and basil in a glass measuring cup. Coat the scallops with oil and season both sides with salt and pepper. When pan is hot (if using a nonstick skillet, residual oils will send up wisps of smoke), add scallops; cook until golden brown, about 2 to 3 minutes on each side. Divide scallops among 4 dinner plates.
  2. Add orange juice mixture to the hot skillet; simmer until reduced by half, 1 to 2 minutes. Stir in butter, pour over scallops and serve.

We enjoyed this a lot, but will try it again with fresh basil. Basil is one of those spices that has much more flavor when the fresh herb is used.

This was a big hit at a luncheon I hosted for several of the fussiest ladies I know! I added a can of mandarin oranges along with the juice instead of the regular orange juice. FABULOUS! I ha...

Yum. Made exactly as the recipe has it listed and served with angel hair pasta.

Easy & good, fresh basil works, too.

I used fresh basil, and substituted Chilean sea bass for half of the scallops. I served it over angel hair pasta, and it was delicious! As good as any restaurant meal I've had, and super fast ...

I loved this recipe, but I actually used it with jumbo shrimp instead of scallops! It was delicious.

Wow! This is a really great recipe! I'm not a very good cook, but this was really simple to prepare and it tasted great. I used bay scallops and didn't have any pasta, but the recipe still wo...
