Scallops & Sweet Peas

Scallops and peas are a perfect combination for a quick steamed dinner. If you can’t find pea sprouts, serve the peas and scallops over a bed of fresh mixed salad greens.


  • 1 Tbsp. thyme
  • 2 cups peas
  • 1½ lbs. large dry sea scallops, tough muscle removed
  • ½ tsp. salt, divided
  • ½ tsp. pepper, divided
  • 2 cups pea sprouts
  • 3 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 tsp. lemon zest
  • 1 Tbsp. lemon juice


  1. Place a large steamer basket in a large, heavy-bottomed pot and add water to just below the steamer bottom. Add peas to the steamer and top with scallops in a single layer. Sprinkle with thyme, ¼ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper.
  2. Cover the pot and place over high heat. When steam begins to escape, start timing. Steam for 3 minutes. Add pea sprouts, cover, and continue steaming until the scallops are just cooked through (2-3 minutes). Remove from the heat.
  3. Whisk oil, lemon zest, lemon juice, and the remaining ¼ teaspoon salt and pepper in a small bowl until combined. Spoon the scallops, peas, and pea sprouts onto a serving platter. Drizzle with the dressing and serve immediately.
