Simple and Amazing Seared Scallops with Fennel, Cherry Tomatoes and Garlic Toast
I had a great time making this dish last night while my husband fed the baby. Total time to put baby to sleep 35 minutes. Total time to make this dish 30. Perfect match.
Even though it looks pretty, this is fundamentally a throw stuff in the pot dish, witch makes it fast and stress free. Scallops are basically seared in a little bit of oil for three minutes. The fennel and onion are cooked until tender and meet up with clam juice, wine and the cherry tomatoes for another 6-8 minutes to impart flavor and thicken the sauce. The scallops are sent back into the pot for another 2-3 minutes of cooking. And boom – healthy, delicious meal just in time for bleary eyed husband.
PS: The garlic toast – made simply by rubbing garlic onto great crusty bread, was a great way to sop up the extra sauce.
Here’s the original recipe from Real Simple.
