Seared scallops with edamame puree
Smartpoints value per serving
The flavor of this dish is meant for special occasions but the under-40 minute cook times makes it fully accessible for weeknight dinners or a nice weekend lunch. The delicate sweetness of the scallops is perfectly matched with the rich a mildly sweet edamame, brightened with a lemony finish. Dry, day-boat or diver sea scallops are what you want for this recipe as they contain no preservatives. Using the edamame 2-ways is a great way to add texture to the dish without extra steps. Serve with a small arugula salad with halved grape tomatoes for a lighter meal. Bulk up on veggies with some roasted carrots or thinly sliced seared bell peppers to bring more vibrant colors to the plate.
