Scallops and Snap Peas

Source: Everyday Food, June 2004


  • 4 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 pound small sea scallops, side muscle removed
  • Coarse salt
  • 1 small onion, sliced 1/4 inch thick
  • 1 tablespoon fresh ginger
  • 1/2 pound snap peas, trimmed
  • 2 tablespoons grated freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon Asian garlic-chili sauce
  • 1/2 cup fresh cilantro leaves


  1. In a large nonstick skillet over high heat, warm oil, about 1 minute; swirl to evenly coat bottom of pan. Add scallops, flat side down, and cook until browned on both sides, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Season with salt. Transfer to plate.

  2. Reduce heat to medium; add onion, and cook, stirring, until browned, 1 to 2 minutes. Add ginger, snap peas, and 1/2 cup water; cook, stirring occasionally, until vegetables are crisp-tender and water has evaporated, about 3 minutes.

  3. Remove from heat; add scallops, lime juice, chili sauce, and cilantro leaves. Toss to evenly coat. Season with salt, if desired.
