Scallops!

I feel like I haven’t posted in forever! I looked back at the last post I did and it was ten days ago, my apologies everyone. I hope everyone survived. Ha, kidding. But seriously… sorry for slacking. Last week was busy. Anyway, I made a trip to Trader Joe’s yesterday to stock up on some meat until I could place a legit order with US Wellness Meats and for some reason scallops ended up in my basket. I’ve never cooked scallops before. Hell, I’ve only eaten them a couple times in my entire life. They seem tricky but after doing some research, I’ve found that they are ridiculously simple to cook. If fish isn’t your thing, venture out of your comfort zone, you never know what your taste buds might take a liking to.

Ingredients
About a handful and a half of scallops per person seasoned with salt and pepper
One handful of coriander
Two chilies (de-seeded and chopped finely)
Three cloves of garlic
Four tablespoons of coconut oil
Juice of two lemons or limes

Heat the coconut oil until its almost smoking then add the scallops and fry them for a few minutes before adding the garlic, chili and lemon/lime juice.  Turn them over and continue frying them for another minute or two before adding the coriander (you could also add a tablespoon of butter at this point if you wanted to). If a lot of water comes out of the scallops don’t worry, just turn up the heat even higher to reduce it.
