Scallop Whole-Wheat Pasta

READY IN: 35mins




  • Prepare the pasta al dente (cook in boiling water for 9 minutes). Sprinkle and toss with a little olive oil and set aside in a pasta dish.
  • Dry each scallop thoroughly and season with salt and pepper.
  • Warm the olive oil in a frying pan on a high heat.
  • Evenly space the scallops and cook for 2 minutes on one side. If are using a smaller size pan, you may have to do two or three batches.
  • After 2 minutes, flip the scallops and continue cooking them for an additional 1-2 minutes, then immediately remove them from the pan.
  • Add the butter and onions to the pan and saute the onions until they are tender, then add the garlic and tomatoes.
  • Add the white wine and stir to form a sauce then season with salt and pepper.
  • Coat the pasta with the sauce and add scallops.
  • Sprinkle with the herbs, add a couple of dashes of lemon juice and serve. I also like to add some crushed red pepper or crushed chipotle pepper but that is your call.
