Valentine's Dinner: Steak and Cilantro Scallops


For Valentine's Day this year, we decided to stay in and cook. She loves scallops, I love spicy, so we decided to go with a pan seared scallop dusted in chili pepper with a lime-jalapeno sauce. I've never made scallops myself, so this was a real learning experience. I served them with a strip steaks seasoned with a blend of ground peppercorns and coriander. And you can't have steak and scallops without a baked potato.

This scallop recipe came from Weight Watchers. I stuck with it because of my lack of experience with these sweet beauties. They didn't sear as well as I'd have liked, so I think I will up the temperature a little next time. But the taste was wonderful, the sweetness of the scallops came through, but with just a little kick from the sauce. The steak came out beautifully.

These delicious scallops are only 123 calories with 3 grams of fat and 4 of fiber.

About Me
I love food! But I let that love get the best of me and my weight ballooned to more than 300 pounds. My wife and I joined Weight Watchers and, over a three-year period, I lost 100 pounds. However, I refused to give up on the foods I love, from Alfredo to cheeseburgers. I set out to find ways to eat almost anything I wanted, but to prepare it in a healthy way. Now, I'm sharing my love of food and cooking with others interested in living a healthy lifestyle.
