Scallops With Snow Peas and Orange Recipe 2010-06-14 16:42:12

Ingredients

  1. 1 cup couscous
    2 teaspoons plus 1 tablespoon olive oil
    16 sea scallops (about 1 1/2 pounds)
    kosher salt and black pepper
    1 orange
    3/4 pound snow peas, halved lengthwise

Directions

  1. Cook the couscous according to the package directions.
  2. Meanwhile, heat 2 teaspoons of the oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Pat the scallops dry, season with ¼ teaspoon each salt and pepper, and cook until opaque throughout and golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate and cover to keep warm; wipe out the skillet.
  3. Using a vegetable peeler, remove 4 strips of zest from the orange; thinly slice the zest.
  4. Heat the remaining tablespoon of oil in the skillet over medium-high heat. Add the snow peas, orange zest, and ¼ teaspoon each salt and pepper and cook, tossing, until the snow peas are just tender, about 2 minutes. Serve with the scallops and couscous.

Serves 4.
