Serve this citrusy scallop dish atop fresh cooked pasta. Add some crusty bread and bottle of chilled white wine and you’ve got yourself an elegant dinner.

Ingredients:

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 red bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • 4 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 pound scallops
  • ½ tablespoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • ½ teaspoon grated lime zest
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 4 large oranges, peeled and segmented
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro

Directions:

In a large skillet, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Add the red bell pepper, green onions and garlic. Cook, stirring for 1 minute. Add the scallops, salt and red pepper flakes. Cook until the scallops are opaque and the red bell pepper is tender, about 4 to 6 minutes.

Stir in the lime zest and juice, scraping up any browned bits from the bottom of the skillet. Cook for 1 minute. Add the oranges and cilantro, cook until heated through, about 2 minutes.
