Easy  Seared Scallops over Arugula & Fennel with a Meyer Lemon Vinaigrette 


Busy life, or busy wife, all can make this simple recipe. After a long day of work, this is something I like to whip up. It’s so fast and easy, it doesn’t make sense how it could taste so gourmet! 



  • Large Scallops UB10 “dry pack,” “diver scallops” (run from the frozen ones) 
  • One package of fresh arugula 
  • Fresh Fennel 
  • One ripe Meyer lemon 
  • Rice wine vinegar 
  • Shucked pomegranates 
  • Shaved Parmesan cheese 
  • Three garlic cloves 
  • Olive oil, salt & pepper, fresh garden herbs 
  • Red wine & chicken stock (if you have time) 



First make the salad. Thinly slice / shave your fennel stock. Put in bowl and toss with olive oil. Add arugula and toss again. 

 Next the dressing. Squeeze a Meyer lemon into small bowl. Add 4 tbs. of rice wine vinegar. Crush and mince garlic cloves. Add to bowl. Whisk. 

 Pre heat skillet. Stainless steel, or cast iron for the professional looking sear. 

 Pat scallops dry. The key to the perfect seared scallop.  

 Add grape seed oil and a dab of butter to the hot pan. Fully coat pan. 

 Add scallops to pan in clockwise direction. Generously salt & pepper. Sear until crust starts to form 2-3 minutes and flip. Salt & pepper again. You can spoon the drippings over the top to go full gourmet. 

 Quickly toss dressing over greens (too early and they will wilt). Lay on platter. Remove scallops from pan & rest on bed of greens. 

 Deglaze pan with red wine; add fresh garlic & thyme, a little chicken stock. This is an option if you’re on weekend time. Spoon over seared scallops. 

 Add shaved Parmesan, sprinkle with pomegranate seeds. 

 Pretend to wipe the sweat from your brow as if you really worked for hours on this. Serve, enjoy and celebrate the amazing flavors from farm to oceans.
