I love, love, love seafood! Thankfully, it is not something that I am allergic to. One of the best parts about living downtown on the water is that there is a surplus of fresh seafood that is harvested locally. I will walk to one of the many seafood shops and get whatever I am in the mood for that day.

 

Scallops are one of my favorite types of seafood. Scallops are a great source of protein, packing in over 80 percent. They are also high in magnesium and potassium. Potassium is crucial to the health of our bodies. It boosts the nervous system, prevents muscle cramps, and improves bone health and muscle growth. Potassium also reduces anxiety and stress!

 

What You Need:

Scallops

1/2 Lemon

Olive Oil

Pepper

Salt

Garlic Flakes

What To Do:

Season the sea scallops with salt, pepper and garlic flakes. In a preheated, hot pan, drizzle a bit of olive oil. Carefully add in sea scallops and leave them! You want them to get a nice crust on them and if you keep touching them, they will start to fall apart. You want to cook the scallops for 1-½ minutes per side. When the scallops are cooked, squeeze fresh lemon juice over the top and enjoy!
