I am always looking for easy, delicious, and quick meals to make for two. Scallops are so delicious and easy to make especially for two people. This is a recipe is quick, simple, spotlighting the sweet taste of fresh scallops. Oh did I mention low in calories! Prefect for a week night when you want something quick and easy, but oh so good!.
What to make your weeknight dinner a little nicer? Start with a cheese board, keep it simple. It’s so easy to go to your local market, get two or three cheeses(one hard, one soft and one blue), add some nuts, raspberry jam,prosciutto or salami and crackers. Then serve the scallops with a fresh salad, french bread and a crisp white wine! Light some candles and you have what seems like a special dinner on a weeknight!
Marinated Scallops for two
1/2 lb. Sea Scallops*
juice of 1/2 lemon
1 clove garlic, crushed
1/8 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
Rinse Scallops in water and pat dry. In a medium bowl combine lemon, garlic and pepper. Add Scallops, gently toss to coat. Refrigerate for four hours.
I use a grill pan which I love but you can make the scallops in a frying pan. Heat pan to high, add scallops and sear quickly on both sides. Don’t over cook or scallops will be tough. The scallops will be golden.
* Sea scallops are large while bay scallops are small.
