Ingredients

  • 1 lb fresh sea scallops cleaned
  • 1 tbsp Cajun Seasoning or your favorite seasoning
  • 1 cup cooked seasoned rice
  • 1 cup corn kernels fresh
  • 1 small red pepper
  • 1 peach skin on small dice
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1 tbsp cilantro finely chopped
  • sea salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Coat scallops with seasoning on both sides, press seasoning into scallop
  • In a saute pan with very little oil, sear the scallops on both sides for good color, do not move them to check until you begin to see a little browning on the edges
  • Check to make sure Scallops are done (they will no longer be translucent) and serve on a bed of the Corn Medley
  • While scallops are cooking in a saute pan add the butter, and allow to melt.
  • Add corn and red peppers to pan and saute for 5 minutes until partially cooked.
  • Add rice to corn and continue cooking on low until the scallops are done (you may need to add a little water to the pan)
  • Right before serving add in the diced nectarine and on high heat saute for a minute or two.
  • Add chopped cilantro and toss mixture.
  • Place a large spoonful of the Summer medley on a serving plate and arrange scallops on top.
  • Pour any juice from the pan over the scallops and serve immediately
