As well smelling fresh, orange blossom water is also well known for its calming and comforting effect. Sprinkle some on your bed sheets and the scent will help you to gently drift off to sleep. It can stain some fabrics though, so try a little on a corner of the sheet first, to be safe.
6 large sea scallops, cut width-wise making 12 flat pieces
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1 clove garlic, crushed
¼ cup orange blossom water
Pinch of rock salt and ground black pepper
1 tablespoons brown sugar
1. In a large non-stick pan, heat olive oil for 30 seconds over low heat. Add garlic, spread evenly throughout the pan. Place scallops gently over the garlic. Increase heat to medium. Cook for 3 to 4 minutes on each side to get a beautiful brown crust.
2. Pour orange blossom over cooked scallops, and then sprinkle lavender salt or sea salt. Finish by sprinkling brown sugar over finished scallops. This should create a bit of syrup with the scallops. Sauté for a few minutes over low heat.
3.Gently lay on a serving plate and garnish with freshly ground pepper. I like to lay them over a bed of spinach for color and crispy texture.
