Simple Seared Scallops


I got a lot of responses to this picture. Super simple and delicious way to cook Scallops.

I love Scallops! And I love veggies! Our local grocery store had an amazing sale on wild scallops so I had to get some!

Now whenever I want to eat seafood, I get it the day of. I don’t really want to freeze seafood but that’s just me.

Bell peppers
Cherry tomatoes
Rice Alternative or healthy rice option
All seasons salt
Chili powder


Heat up a cast iron skillet, add minced garlic, chopped onions, chopped bell peppers, and cut up cherry tomatoes.

Season with salt, pepper, and chili powder. Cook until slightly soft but not mushy.

Meanwhile, cook some wild rice, quinoa, or healthy rice alternatives. Put as a base. Add sautéed veggies.

In the skillet you cooked your veggies in, add olive oil and put on high heat. Wait for the oil to start smoking.

Add scallops one at a time, make sure they don’t touch.

Season with pepper and all seasons salt. Cook for 1 1/2 minutes then flip. Season and cook the other side for 1 1/2 minutes.

Each side should be dark golden brown and the middle translucent.

Remove and add onto your veggies. Enjoy!
