Basil-Lime Scallops
Combining fresh seafood, baby greens, and lime, this scallop dish has summer written all over it!

Ingredients
2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
Juice of 1 lime
1 teaspoon low-sodium soy sauce
1 teaspoon vegetable oil
1 clove garlic, minced
1/8 teaspoon red pepper flakes
8 jumbo sea scallops (about 1 pound)
Mixed baby greens (optional)
Lime wedges (optional)

Directions
Yield: 4 servings
Serving size: 2 scallops

1. Whisk basil, lime juice, soy sauce, oil, garlic, and red pepper flakes in shallow bowl until smooth and well blended. Add scallops; turn to coat evenly. Marinate in refrigerator 30 minutes.

2. Heat large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat.* Cook scallops 3 minutes per side, or until desired doneness is reached.

3. Place 2 scallops on each serving plate. Serve with mixed greens, if desired. Garnish with lime wedges.

Note: There are two types of scallops available: sea scallops and bay scallops. Sea scallops are more widely available, although they’re less tender. Bay scallops are smaller, slightly sweeter, and more expensive.
