Today’s Menu: Cajun Spiced Seared Scallops w/ Brown Rice, Parmesan and Herb Red Potatoes, and Baked Artisan Multi Grain Loaf

 

 

They confirmed today my Dad is coming home Saturday from the rehab center! He’s been gone for a while now it’s going to be nice to have him home. So for dinner tonight while at Kroger yesterday I purchased some Bay Scallops, which I haven’t had in years! For Dinner; Cajun Spiced Seared Scallops w/ Brown Rice, Parmesan and Herb Red Potatoes, and Baked Artisan Multi Grain Loaf.

 

 

To prepare it I’ll need; 1 pound of Bay Sea Scallops, 2 teaspoons Cajun Seasoning, 2 teaspoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil, 1/2 teaspoon Sea Bay Scallops Brown Rice 008Salt, Dash freshly Ground Peppercorn, 1 tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil, and 2 teaspoons unsalted Butter. To prepare them is quick and easy first in a food storage bag, toss the scallops gently with the Zatarain’s Cajun Seasoning, 2 teaspoons olive oil, salt, and pepper. Refrigerate for about 1 hour. Heat the 1 tablespoon olive oil and 2 teaspoons of butter in a large skillet over high heat. With tongs, arrange the scallops in the hot fat and cook for about 2 to 3 minutes on each side, or until nicely browned and your done! The Zatarain’s Cajun Seasoning is fantastic on the Scallops, nice heat and seasoning but not overpowering where you can’t enjoy the flavor of the Bay Scallops.

 

For side dishes I prepared some Uncle Ben’s Natural Whole Grain Brown Rice, not much to prepare it was the microwave single serving of Rice. The quick but still delicious way for Rice. I also prepared some more of the Idahoan Parmesan and Herb Red Potatoes. Second time I’ve had these and love them! I also baked up some more of the La Brea Bakery Take and Bake Artisan Multi Grain Loaf. I’ll have to have the Bay Scallops more often! The Scallops paired with the Parm Red Potatoes and Brown Rice is perfect! For dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Double Chocolate Pudding.
