Peach and Ginger Scallops

June 30, 2012

It’s been a while since I made this, but I never got around of posting it. So here it is! It was quite different, but very tasty, and a great and alternative way of serving scallops. The dish mixes sweet and spicy flavors with the mildness of the scallops, and it’s a really great result. The recipe is from Loren Cordain’s cookbook “The Paleo Diet Cookbook”.

You need:

  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 large shallot, minced
  • 1 tablespoon freshly grated ginger root
  • 2 large peaches, peeled, cored, and coarsely chopped
  • 2 pounds sea scallops
  • juice from 1/2 lime


1. Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a cast iron skillet om medium flame. Add shallot and cook for 2 minutes. Combine with ginger and stir for half a minute.

2. Please peaches in skillet and continue cooking for 3 minutes, stirring at the halfway point. Remove peach mixture and place in a small bowl. Cover to keep warm.

3. Add the remaining tablespoon of oil to the skillet. Place scallops in a single layer and cook for four to six minutes, turning once. Return peach mixture to pan, covering scallops evenly. Remove from heat and drizzle with lime juice.

    That looks lovely! Do you recommend 3mins of heat for each side when cooking scallops? I’m going to try them soon!

    4 to 6 minutes, turning once halfway through! But check them first, depends how thick they are… A good tip is to put a cover on the pan so that the heat is more concentrated… good luck đŸ™‚
