Ingredients

  • 1 cup House-Autry Seafood Seasoned Breading Mix
  • 12 large (about 1 1/2 pounds) sea scallops
  • 3/4 cup orange juice, divided
  • 1 (16-ounce) pkg vermicelli pasta
  • 5 tbsp softened butter, divided
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/4 cup white wine
  • 1/2 tsp orange zest

Directions

Rinse scallops; place in a small bowl with 1/2 cup orange juice. Allow to marinate for 1 hour.
