Pan Seared Scallops with Green Beans Almandine

This is so simple and so good. It’s also fairly healthy.


1/2 lb sea scallops

2 Tablespoons olive oil

salt and pepper

2 Tablespoons butter

1/2 lb fresh or frozen green beans

1 Tablespoon lemon juice

2 Tablespoons sliced almonds


1. Rinse scallops with water and pat dry.

2. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper.

3. Heat 2 Tablespoons olive oil in a medium pan over medium high heat. Cook scallops 1-2 minutes on each side or until they turn opaque and get a seared crust.

4. In the same pan, cook beans in 2 Tablespoons butter on medium high heat  for 5 minutes. Add lemon juice, toss to coat and serve.
