Friday nights are not usually nights that I make an elaborate meal. After one of the most stressful weeks I can remember, I arrived home from Baltimore, and decided there was nothing I wanted more than a really good meal.
Maple Orange Glazed Scallops with Veggies & Couscous
Calories: 322 kCal
4 large sea scallops (I love Trader Joe’s Frozen Sea Scallops)
1/3 cup cauliflower, cut into small pieces
5 small asparagus stalks, cut into 1 inch pieces
3 Brussels sprouts, finely cut
1/4 cup whole wheat couscous
1/2 cup vegetable broth
2 1/2 tsp True Citrus Orange Ginger Seasoning
1/2 tsp True Lime crystals
1/2 tbsp maple syrup
1) Bring broth, salt and 1 tsp Orange Ginger seasoning to a boil. When boiling, add couscous and remove from heat and cover immediately. Fluff with a fork when broth is completely absorbed.
2) I’m large sauté pan, add veggies, salt and 1 tsp Orange Ginger seasoning, and sauté.
3) Add scallops to pan, and turn regularly. After they begin to cook, add 1/4 tbsp maple syrup,sprinkle remaining 1/2 tsp orange ginger seasoning. Cook 4-9 minutes or until browned on outside, and tender on the inside (longer cook times for frozen).
4) Serve couscous onto plate, top with veggies and scallops. Sprinkle True Lime and remaining maple syrup on top, then enjoy!
