Paleo and whole 30 friendly Steamed Garlic and Herb Scallops with Veggies

  • 1 tbsp oil
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp each dried basil and onion salt
  • 1/4 tsp minced garlic
  • 1 serving (4-5 medium to large) scallops (we use sizzlefish)
  • Dressing of choice. I used a goddess dressing with garlic but italian or balsamic would be great too!
  • 1 cup favorite veggies or spinach greens (chopped)


  1. Place water and dash salt in small pot. Place steamer on top. In a separate bowl, toss your scallops in a bit of your favorite dressing (maybe 1-2 tbsp) and then add in your seasoning. Boil your water then Place scallops and veggies on top of steamer. cover and steam with boiled water for 7-8 minutes or until scallops are opaque.
  2. Remove from pot and place everything on plate. Add more seasoning and dash of lemon juice.
  3. scallops Serves one but you can add more and make it serve two or more!
  4. Check scallops and veggies around 7-8 minutes to see if they are done.
  5. Scallops are done when they are opaque in center and easy to slice, not chewy.
  6. You really can’t undercook them.
  7. And if you are using smaller scallops, they will probably cook faster, around 5-6 minutes steamed.
