Weight Watchers Seared Sea Scallops Recipe



Weight Watchers Seared Sea Scallops Recipe. These succulent scallops are quick and easy, ready in just 5 minutes! Perfect as an appetizer, or part of you favorite seafood dinner.

To make this dish, you’ll need a few simple ingredients.

Start with fresh sea scallops, which you can find at your local seafood market or grocery store. The scallops should be plump and have a sweet aroma.

Other key ingredients include olive oil, butter, salt, and pepper. These basic seasonings enhance the natural flavors of the scallops without overpowering them.

What to Serve With


For a light and refreshing meal, consider serving them on a bed of mixed greens with a squeeze of lemon juice.

You can also create a more substantial dish by pairing the scallops with roasted vegetables or a side of steamed rice.

The versatility of these scallops allows you to get creative and experiment with different flavor combinations.

Tips and Tricks


First, make sure your pan is preheated to medium-high heat before adding the scallops. This helps achieve that beautiful sear on the outside while keeping the inside tender and juicy.

It’s important not to overcrowd the pan, as this can lead to steaming rather than searing the scallops.

Finally, resist the urge to move the scallops around while they’re cooking. Let them develop that delicious crust before flipping.

Now that you have the basics, it’s time to dive into the kitchen and create your own mouthwatering dish with WW Friendly Scallops.
