Seared Heart Healthy Scallops With Snow Peas and Orange
Written by Eli Ben-YehudaOn August 10, 2017
Enjoy these scrumptious heart healthy scallops. Pan seared scallops with snow peas and orange. I enjoy pan searing my scallops in a good white wine with shallots, garlic, and mushrooms. Avoid searing them in butter as good as they taste they lose their heart healthy certificate. Place on a bed of fluffy couscous and serve with a fresh garden salad, and enjoy.
- 1 cup couscous
- 2 teaspoons plus 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 16 sea scallops (about 1 1/2 pounds)
- kosher salt and black pepper
- 1 orange
- 3/4 pound snow peas, halved lengthwise
1 Cook the couscous according to the package directions.
2 Meanwhile, heat 2 teaspoons of the oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat.
3 Pat the scallops dry and season with ¼ teaspoon each salt and pepper. Cook until opaque throughout and golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate and cover.
4 Using a vegetable peeler, remove 4 strips of zest from the orange. Thinly slice them.
5 Wipe out the skillet. Heat the remaining tablespoon of oil over medium-high heat. Add the snow peas, orange zest, and ¼ teaspoon each salt and pepper.
6 Cook, tossing, until the snow peas are just tender, about 2 minutes. Serve with the scallops and couscous.Click Here For More Heart Healthy Recipes
