Garlic Scallops and Broccolini

Jun 18, 2021

1 lb large scallops
2 tbsp avocado oil
3 cloves garlic minced
1 lemon juiced
¼ cup chopped fresh parsley
Sea salt and pepper
¼ tsp red pepper flakes
1 lb broccolini
2 tsp avocado oil
Himalayan salt and black pepper

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees and place broccolini on a large baking sheet and drizzle
    with oil. Season with salt and pepper.
  2. Roast broccolini until fork tender and ends are slightly charred, about 30 minutes.
  3. Make sure to pat dry the scallops on paper towels very well before cooking.
  4. Heat up a large cast iron skillet on medium heat.
  5. In a medium bowl toss the scallops with just enough oil to lightly coat all over. Sprinkle
    with salt and pepper and red pepper flakes.
  6. Add a little oil to the hot skillet and add the scallops making sure not to crowd the pan,
    and sear for 2 minutes on each side until nicely golden. Flip over halfway through.
  7. Add the garlic to the pan then remove from heat. Spread the garlic around to infuse the
    sauce for about 30 seconds.
  8. Squeeze half of the lemon all over the scallops and combine. Sprinkle with parsley and
    serve the scallops with roasted broccolini.
