Pop quiz: Scallops are A) fancy restaurant food, or B) fast, fresh and easy to cook. You chose B, right? These pan-seared scallops with citrusy corn succotash from Amanda Haas’s new cookbook, The Vibrant Life: Eat Well, Be Well, are a prime example: They take minutes to whip up and are surprisingly good for you too.
“To me, scallops feel like a total luxury food,” Haas writes, “but believe it or not, they have huge health benefits. Three ounces of scallops have 20 grams of protein and less than 100 calories, and they’re loaded with magnesium, potassium and vitamin B12—all key components to aging well.” We like the sound of that.
If you’re still intimidated by the thought of cooking shellfish at home, know this: The scallops require just two minutes of cooking per side. Read: They’re practically foolproof.
You could save this one for an impressive dinner party…but why wait?
