Ingredients
  • 16 medium diver scallops, cleaned
  • 1/8 cup extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for searing
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic

  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 cups field greens
Directions

In a medium bowl, marinate the scallops with olive oil, garlic, thyme, salt, and pepper. Let them marinate for 20 minutes.

Heat enough olive oil to lightly coat the bottom of a medium saute pan over medium-high heat. Add the scallops. Cook quickly in each side until golden brown, about 1 to 2 minutes per side. Remove from the heat and place 4 scallops around a mound of greens. Repeat.

Awesome - have done t his 5 or 6 times now. Very easy and delicious every time. Only one warning - the scallop mixture carmelizes and gets sticky. Be prepared to have a teflon spatula to scrape the great stuff from the bottom of the pan. It's the best part :) item not reviewed by moderator and published
