Steamed Scallops with Garlic, Herb, and veggies all cooked in ONE POT! Cooking Scallops can seem intimidating for some, but this paleo friendly dish is ready in 10 minutes and is SUPER easy to make. A Healthy Light meal for one or more!
Hello FRIDAY! I’m thinking since we started this week with an intimidating food made easy (i.e easy peasy sticky rice cakes!), we should end it the same way. How does that sound? I mean, this week doesn’t need to be full of detail or over complicated. Nope, it’s summer. It’s kinda dragging, and we’re craving all forms of simplicity.
As you might know, I’m a seafood junkie, so eating scallops are my jam! One seafood dish that a lot of people email me about are scallops. They are so scared to cook scallops. Actually, I should say they are so scared to ruin scallops. Haha! Scallops are the golden nugget of seafood, in my opinion
When it comes to this amazing piece of seafood, many people treat scallops as if they are glass, super fragile. But in actuality, scallops are probably the easiest to make and to flavor! I promise! All you have to worry about is not OVER cooking them. They hold great flavor to whatever ingredient or herb you add to them. And they are ready in a jiffy!
Today I’m sharing a recipe that literally took me 15 minutes from start to finish. I made this meal for the Kiwi and I last week, except I hogged the scallops and gave him the shrimp. Hey, can you blame me?
All you need is one pot, a little seasoning, and your favorite veggie of choice. Oh and steamer, if you have one. I ended up just using a veggie steamer and placed everything in it. Yep, scallops, herbs, finely chopped cauliflower (a little thicker than cauliflower rice texture), kale, and broth.
