Aruguala Salad Herb Goat Cheese Medallions and Seared Scallops

Herb Crusted Goat Cheese Medallions

A simple cool crisp arugula salad with sliced red onion, fresh lemon juice, and *e.v.o.o. is perfect by itself. Now, when you top the salad with my warm herb-crusted goat cheese medallions, that takes the salad to a whole new level. Really delicious and simple to make. Let me show how I make these little gems. This is my Arugula Salad With Herb Crusted Goat Cheese Medallions.

Steve brought home half a pound of fresh sea scallops. He asked me if I would pan sear a few of them for his salad. You know how it is, he just couldn’t wait to eat them. That’s why you see them in the picture.

Below are my new garlic chives!

Ingredients For The Fried Goat Cheese Medallions:
2 11-ounce logs of goat cheese, sliced into 12 medallions 1/2-inch thick
3 large eggs, beaten
1 teaspoon Kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
2 tablespoons of minced chives
2 tablespoons of Italian flat-leaf parsley, finely chopped
1 1/2 cups of Panko bread crumbs
2 tablespoons of unsalted butter
1 tablespoon of olive oil

Directions:
Start by dividing evenly, into four porcelain salad bowls, the arugula, and sliced red onions. Cover each bowl with plastic wrap and transfer to the refrigerator to stay cold until ready to serve.

The Breading:
Place the panko, chives, and Italian flat-leaf parsley into a large mixing bowl.  Mix the fresh and dried herbs evenly throughout the Panko bread crumbs.

For the egg mixture, add to a bowl, 3 eggs, Kosher salt, fresh ground black pepper, and garlic powder. Using a fork, beat the eggs and spices together. Remove the goat cheese logs from the frig and slice into 12 1/2-inch thick medallions.

Dip the medallions, a few at a time, flipping with a fork, into the seasoned egg mixture, toss to coat. Next, carefully using a fork to transfer them, two or three at a time, into the herbed Panko, using a fork to flip the medallions.

Place the breaded goat cheese onto a rimmed baking sheet pan lined with parchment paper. Once all of the medallions are breaded, place the baking sheet into the frig to chill and set for 30 minutes.

In a large sauté pan. until over medium heat melt butter and olive oil swishing around to coat the pan. Once melted, arrange the breaded goat cheese medallions in the pan, do not overcrowd. Spread them out giving each enough room to flip. You may need to do this in two batches. Cook the goat cheese medallions quickly on both sides until lightly browned on the outside not allowing the cheese to melt on the inside.

Note:  Cook just until lightly brown on both sides.

Note:  If cooking in two batches, add another tablespoon of butter and oil. Bring the melted oil and butter back up to temperature before adding in the second batch of breaded medallions.

To Serve:  Squeeze fresh lemon juice over each of the prepared salads. Sprinkle each salad with Kosher salt and fresh ground pepper to taste. Drizzle with the *E.V.O.O. and toss.  Top each with three goat cheese medallions. There you have it my Arugula Salad With Herb Crusted Goat Cheese Medallions.

Serve immediately.

*E.V.O.O. is extra virgin olive oil.
