Tuesday night I made the best meal I think I’ve ever eaten. It’s fresh pan seared scallops and zucchini over a bed of fresh spinach. Here’s the directions:

Cut up 2 large or 3 small zucchini squash and put in a frying pan with some cooking spray and let simmer with a lid on top to become tender. Then add to that pan about a pound of large sea scallops. The fresh ones are way better than frozen. Add a tablespoon of lemon juice and lemon pepper seasoning to taste. Stir and let simmer until the scallops are cooked and the zucchini is tender. This should take 5 – 10 minutes depending on how high the heat it on the burner. I constantly stir mine so I didn’t time it.

While you are doing that place the entire contents of a bag of fresh spinach in a pot with filled about a third of the way up with water. Let this boil until the spinach is soft. Drain the water from the spinach.

You can use the spinach to make a bed for the scallops and zucchini.

It’s super quick, easy and delicious. You could add shrimp, change the veggies, change the spices for a different flavor.. there’s so many things you can do with this meal.

Here are the nutrition facts for the way it is now… (I split the entire recipe in half because you should share this meal with someone you really like a lot)
