  • 12 large scallops

  • 2 cups green beans

  • 2 cups tomatoes, diced

  • 2 tbsp olive oil, divided

  • 2 garlic cloves, minced

  • 4 tbsp parsley, roughly chopped

  • juice of 2 lemons


  1. Prepare the scallops: Pat the scallops dry with a paper towel and season them with salt and pepper.

  2. Cook the green beans: Fill a medium-sized pot with water and bring it to a boil. Add a pinch of salt to the boiling water and blanch the green beans for about 3-4 minutes until they are bright green and slightly tender. Drain the green beans and set them aside.

  3. Sauté the tomatoes: In a large skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil over medium heat. Add the diced tomatoes and minced garlic to the skillet and sauté for about 3-4 minutes until the tomatoes start to soften and release their juices. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

  4. Cook the scallops: In a separate skillet, heat the remaining 1 tablespoon of olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the scallops to the skillet and cook for about 2-3 minutes per side until they are golden brown and cooked through. Be careful not to overcook them as they can become tough.

  5. Assemble the dish: Arrange the cooked green beans on a plate. Spoon the sautéed tomatoes over the green beans. Place the cooked scallops on top of the tomatoes.

  6. Garnish and serve: Sprinkle the chopped parsley over the dish. Squeeze the lemon juice over the scallops, green beans, and tomatoes. Serve immediately while the scallops are still hot.
