Minute Scallops au Limon

MINUTE SCALLOPS AU LIMON


Serves 2-3
INGREDIENTS:
1 lb Wild Alaskan sea scallops, (rinsed, thawed* if frozen)
2 tablespoons organic extra virgin coconut/olive oil
Himalayan Sea salt & black pepper
1 small lemon w/ zest (juiced)
2 cloves garlic (minced)
red pepper flakes (optional)
fresh herb (garnish)
INSTRUCTIONS:
  1. Pat scallops completely dry with paper towel.  This is crucial for that professional looking golden brown, and crispy sear.
  2. Place scallops on a clean plate, and season with salt and pepper.
  3. Heat a frying pan medium-high. Then, add the oil.
  4. Add scallops to pan, and cook 2 minutes on the first side.
  5. Flip em and cook for 1 minute.
  6. Add garlic, lemon juice, and red pepper flakes to the pan with the scallops for an additional 1 minute.
  7. Take off the heat. Let rest for a few minutes for juices to settle (if you can wait that long 🙂 )
Top with fresh herbs, and lemon wedge. Pan juices make a wonderful warm vinaigrette sauce. Serve over a bed of organic mixed greens, or along side sautéed vegetables.
*Thaw overnight in the fridge, or place scallops in a bag (air squeezed out, tightly sealed) and immerse in cold water for 20-30 minutes or until flexible.
How will you kick it up? Enjoy!
Be Well,

    p.s. Omit the red pepper flakes — as I ‘m not crazy about the heat.
