Cook Time 10 mins
Servings 1

Ingredients
  

Pea Puree

  • 3/4 Cup Fresh Shelled Peas
  • 1 Fresh Mint Leaf
  • 1/4 TSP Fresh Minced Garlic
  • Sea Salt To Taste

Scallops

  • 5-6 Jumbo Scallops
  • Sea Salt
  • Fresh Cracked Peppercorn
  • Olive Oil For the Pan

Garnish

  • 1/2 Cup Fresh Peas
  • 1/4 Cup Pea Shoots

Instructions
 

Pea Puree

  • Add peas to boiling water and allow to cook for about 2-3 minutes.
  • Remove, and add garlic, salt, a little of the water that the peas were boiling in, and mint. Puree with an immersion blender. Add additional water if required. Set aside.

Scallops

  • Pat scallops dry with a paper towel. Season generously with sea salt and fresh cracked peppercorns (Like, go nuts!)
  • Heat your pan over medium-high heat, and allow it to get piping hot. Drizzle with olive oil. Place your scallops down in the pan.
  • Allow scallops to cook for about 2 minutes per side. You want a crispy golden sear!
  • Remove scallops from the pan once they are properly seared on each side. A very hot pan will ensure this happens quickly, without over cooking your scallops.

Plate and Garnish

  • Place your pea puree on a plate, then scallops, then sprinkle additional peas and pea shoots for garnish.
  • Enjoy your "Clean Eating" Meal!
