- 3-6 scallops
- Olive oil
- 1 potato
- 2 Tbsp butter
- 2 Tbsp hal and half
- 1 Tbsp fresh chives, chopped
- Salt and pepper
Scallops: Rinse scallops and blot with paper towels so that they are fairly dry. Heat a skillet on medium low, and add a drizzle of olive oil and 1 Tbsp of butter. When butter is melted, turn the heat to medium and add the scallops. Cook for 2 minutes, or until brown, then turn and cook for another 2 minutes. Remove and season with salt and pepper.
Potatoes. Peel and quarter one potato. Place in a microwave safe bowl with a lid and cook on high for 6-8 minutes. Let stand for another 5 minutes with the lid on, then check for tenderness when pierced with a fork. Add the other tablespoon of butter and the half and half, the mash with a fork and season with salt and pepper.
To serve: Arrange 1/2 cup mashed potatoes on a plate. Top with scallops, chopped chives, and more salt and pepper to taste.
Serve on 1/2 cup cooked brown rice instead of potatoes.
