Seared Scallops With Snow Peas


I struggle with prioritizing my time, which is why I love this recipe—it's one of the easiest meals ever. One plate is just 166 calories!

Rinse scallops and pat dry. Set at room temperature for 5 minutes; season with 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in skillet over high heat until hot. Sear 6 scallops at a time (add 1 tablespoon oil for second batch), turning once (4-6 minutes per batch).

Heat 1 tablespoon oil in saute pan. Cook peas in 2 batches (2-3 minutes per batch). Remove from heat; sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon salt and lemon juice and zest. Serves 4
