Tomato Scallops with Mint and CousCous

Whenever I think of scallops my mind instantly goes to episodes of Hell's Kitchen. I never understood how someone could go on a cooking show to get their own restaurant, yet not having a clue of how to cook a scallop?? Even I can make them...go figure! Here is a delicious recipe I made tonight, that anyone can easily make.


  • 3 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 pound of scallops
  • 1 shallot
  • 2 cups of diced cherry tomatoes
  • 1 Tablespoon of fresh mint
  • 1/4 cup of dry white wine

First chop the scallops, mint, and cherry tomatoes.

Heat 2 Tablespoons of olive oil in a pan, and then add the scallops.

 Cook the scallops for 5-10 minutes on each side before transferring to a plate.

Then add the remaining 1 Tablespoon of olive oil to pan. Add shallots, tomatoes, and mint.

Cook for 3-5 minutes before adding wine.

After adding the wine, cook for about 1 minute. Then add the shallots into the pan with the tomatoes, and cook for an additional 5-10 minutes.

Serve over a bed of fresh couscous. Enjoy!
