Dukan Pan Seared Scallops

We loved these scallops.

Pan Seared Scallops
We actually prefer eating our fresh scallops raw on sushi rice...mmmm.  These were frozen scallops from Costco and they made a great pan seared addition to our dinner.  It was simple and light although we still prefer our scallops raw.

We had these on a pure protein day (with a lobster tail each), but the leftovers went well on our protein veggie day with some stir fried red bell peppers.  If you don't like raw scallops, you may want to cook these a little longer.

Serves 2
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: approx 6-8 minutes

16 scallops, thawed and rinsed
salt and pepper to taste
dried chives, approx 1-2 t.
1/4 c. dry white wine

Use high heat on stove top.  Spray pan with a little bit of olive oil spray.  Season scallops with salt and pepper.  Place scallops in pan, sear scallops approximately 3 minutes per side, if you prefer your scallops cooked, pan fry them longer.  When almost done, pour in wine and chives, toss.  Serve immediately.



  1. Thanks...they were. I'm thinking of tossing them in a low fat creamy sauce over tofu noodles!
