Good afternoon Ladies (and gents, if there are any)
I had a pack of lovely Sea Scallops that I had defrosted and needed to use today. Being on Phase 1 and all, I looked for a recipe and really didn't find one without carbs, so I made one up.

Here goes:

Some EVOO ;) "Extra Virgin Olive Oil" (for those unfamiliar with Rachel Ray and her "isms")
Heated the pan, put a TBSP of EVOO, 3 cloves of garlic diced, 1 yellow pepper, and 1/2 pound of Asparagus raw chopped in 2" pieces, and zested some lemon - then sauteed until everything was cooked tender but not soft adding a small amount of salt and pepper to taste.
Added another TBSP of EVOO and added 1 lb of luscious Sea Scallops (from Vital Choice) When cooked thoroughly, I split the pan into 2 servings and shared with my son. We topped it off with some grated Dubliner Irish Cheese. Yum - O!!!:cool:

What about you?

YUM! I love seafood. Not such a fan of scallops (but maybe that is because I grew up in FL and we had them ALL the time - we would even go scalloping - or maybe I just don't like the frozen ones we get here in TX).
