Seared Scallops

I never tasted a scallop until I was way into my 20’s. If you are just entering your 20’s, now is the time to try them. I don’t know what it is about them, but they’re damn delicious.

Ingredients:

Scallops (try the Patagonian ones from Publix my Florida people)

Salt and pepper

Butter

Cooking scallops in three easy steps:

Step one: Heat a skillet with butter

Step two: Place scallops for three minutes

Step three: Flip scallops cook for another three mins

Step four: ENJOY!

(So I left out the thawing any previously frozen scallops and the drying them off with a paper towel, but it just doesn’t fit into the 1,2,3 method I decided to make up for this post! But please do this, and also season with salt and pepper)

Suggested method of eating:

Add them in your recently made Asparagus Risotto!

 

 

 


  

Oven baked tilapia with vegetables and wild rice 

I got the inspiration for this recipe from my old boss in Switzerland. She made this super easy dish quite often. I don’t know what type of fish she used, but I always make it with Tilapia.

Ingredients:

6 Tilapia filets

1 zucchini

1 yellow squash

1 cup wild rice

Salt and pepper to taste

Italian spices for the veggies

Paprika or red chili powder

Method:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Line a glass baking dish with enough parchment paper to wrap into a bundle.

Lightly oil the paper and place the filets inside. Season with salt, pepper, and paprika.

Chop the vegetables into rounds, and place on top of the fish. Season with salt and spices.

You can see the crazy fish at the bottom there. It’s safe, just cook it!

Close down the parchment paper into a little bundle and place into the oven.

Bake for 20 minutes.

Make your rice on the stove top or your rice cooker, if you’re fancy.

Take the fish out, check to see if it flakes and if the veggies are tender enough for you. This might need another 10 minutes in the oven.

I made this for Easter dinner, yes, Easter. It was a huge hit, I promise!
