Seared Scallops

You know when you eat at a high class restaurant and order scallops? You get about 5 pieces for a ridiculous price like $27, and you’re still hungry so you have to eat a second meal somewhere else. Well, why not make your own at home?! If you’re a scallop lover like me, head over to the supermarket and pick up some fresh scallops. I got 10 pieces for $10! And it only takes 5 minutes to make!

For an even better taste, squeeze some lime juice on top. This is such a great appetizer. I ate all 10 scallops with garlic kale for lunch. Click here for garlic kale recipe: garlic kale.
