I am about to make your life super duper easy right now and you are going to thank me for it. Do you know how you’re always saying you need to get more fish in your diet? Then you go to the grocery store and you walk up to the fish counter and nothing looks that good. And you’re wondering how you will cook it anyway, to make it as good as you might get in a restaurant. You know that there has to be a better option than the standard grocery store fish, which really isn’t all that fresh. You could spend your time trekking to a proper fishmonger. Or perhaps getting to a farmer’s market where there’s a good fish stand. You even have images of hightailing it to a nearby coast (if you’re anywhere near a coast) and buying it straight off the boat. But who has time for any of that? So you purchase a little of the grocery store fish and it’s okay but not great and your good intentions of eating more fish fall by the wayside.
Yep, I feel ya. This is why I am offering you the chance to win a delivery box of really gorgeous fish from Sizzlefish. I have to be honest, scallops nutrition with my busy life, I love that more and more people are getting into the delivery box game. I am lucky to live in Portland, OR, where there are quite a number of good fish stores and stands and yet…I still don’t have time to get to them very often. So I stand at my local grocery store, looking at the fish and thinking about how it’s just not going to be as good as I know it can be.
Sizzlefish sent me their Paleo Prime Plus box to try and I managed to wrangle a giveaway out of them so that you could have a chance to try it too! They’re a small company but they seem to have a really good thing going here and I am very happy to give them some support.
So if you’re looking for a better option than the grocery store fish counter, I’d definitely recommend Sizzlefish. Everything they sent was absolutely delicious.
1/2 teaspoon wasabi powder or 1 teaspoon wasabi paste
1 teaspoon water
2 tbsp mayonnaise
8 ounces large sea scallops
Salt and pepper
1 tablespoon butter
2 slices pickled ginger chopped
Chives for garnish
In a small bowl, combine the wasabi powder and water and mix together to create a paste. Let sit 10 minutes for the flavors to develop. If using wasabi paste, you can skip this step.
Stir in the mayonnaise until well combined.
Pat the scallops very dry and season well with salt and pepper.
Heat the butter in a medium skillet over medium-high heat. When it begins to brown, add the scallops in one layer and sear about 1 1/2 minutes per side.
Set the scallops on a platter and dollop each with a bit of the wasabi mayo. Top with a small piece of pickled ginger and a piece of chive. Serve warm.
