Pretty easy to make (even though it does use 2 skillets and a saucepan, so more clean up), and totally delicious. My husband who never really had scallops before and isn't a big vegetable eater, really loved it. A splurge because diver scallops are generally not cheap, but worth it for a special meal or just any night - I made it on a Monday after work and the gym. I would definitely make this again.
Seared Scallops with Haricots Verts
Look for diver-caught sea scallops from Mexico for the most sustainable choice.
