Scallop Stir Fry

Do you have an iPhone? If you do, I would recommend the Martha Stewart Everyday Food app. It's only .99 cents and you are receive a new recipe everyday. The philosophy behind Everday Food is simple, to create simple, healthy recipes. Most of these use ingredients you probably have in your kitchen and can be created in under 30 minutes! For someone who works full time, it's a wonderful tool to have at your fingertips.

We don't have scallops often but enjoy them whenever we do! Of course in the Midwest, our best option is to buy them frozen. I found a bag of Sashimi grade scallops on sale at Aldi.

To increase the veggies, I added broccoli. It's a delicious and easy weeknight supper!

Scallop Stir Fry
Adapted from Martha Stewart Everyday Food

1 tablespoon olive oil
1 pound small sea scallops, side muscle removed
Coarse salt
1 small onion, halved and sliced 1/4 inch thick
1 tablespoon grated peeled fresh ginger
1/2 pound sugar snap peas, trimmed
1/2 pound broccoli
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
1/2 teaspoon Asian garlic-chili sauce
1/2 cup loosely packed fresh cilantro leaves

1.In a large (12-inch) nonstick skillet over high heat, warm oil, about 1minute; swirl to coat bottom of pan evenly. Add scallops, flat sides down, and cook until browned on both sides, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Season with salt. Transfer to a plate.
2.Reduce heat to medium. Add onion; cook, stirring, until browned, 1 to 2 minutes. Add ginger, sugar snap peas, and 1/2 cup water; cook, stirring occasionally, until peas and broccoli are crisp-tender and water has evaporated, about 3 minutes. Remove from heat.
3.Add scallops, lime juice, chili sauce, and cilantro. Toss to coat. Season with salt, as desired.
