Dayboat Scallops with Coconut Lentils

The natural sweetness of the scallops, the rich creaminess of the coconut lentils, and the nutty chewiness of the brown basmati rice come together to create a colorful dish that is both sophisticated and comforting. Each component complements the others, resulting in a harmonious and delightful meal that is impressive and satisfying.

Day-boat scallops  are harvested from fishing trips that return to port the same day. This is key to their pure, unadulterated flavor as they do not need to be stored on ice at sea for extended periods. Additionally, they are not treated with sodium tripolyphosphate, a common preservative that can degrade the quality of scallops by making them waterlogged and altering their texture and flavor.

Coconut Lentils are a flavorful and aromatic base for the scallops. The red lentils are cooked with coconut milk, which imparts a creamy texture and rich flavor. Turmeric brings warm, earthy flavors and a vibrant hue. Tomatoes, garlic, and onions add depth and savory notes, while lemon and ginger provide bright, zesty accents. Thinly sliced red chile adds the contrasting spicy element while mixed herbs contribute freshness and complexity to the dish.

Steamed Brown Basmati Rice accompanies the dish, providing a nutty flavor and chewy texture that pairs well with the creamy lentils and tender scallops.
