Simple Lunch Scallops

Ok, folks..... I got the bug to get back in the kitchen since my docs both yelled at me just before New Years Eve. Believe it or not..... yours truly was a damn slacker for most of last fall, and lab work doesn't lie. So guess what? 
New Years Resolution Time :-)
If you're diabetic, you know as well as I do that alcohol and pretty much all simple carbs are our worst enemy. To that end, the ideal solution is to simply eliminate both. I know... I know... Not really all that simple, Mr Reilly......
Well, as you now know, I'm not perfect, but I do try. 
For starters, let's get back on track with this really simple, fresh and amazing lunch.

  • 1 1/2 lbs raw scallops
  • 4 mid sized tomatoes - cut into small chunks
  • light oil, like a soy/olive blend
  • 1 medium yellow onion - cut up to your preference
  • 4-5 garlic cloves - minced
  • Salt and fresh ground black pepper to taste
In a large non-stick fry-pan sautee garlic in a bit of oil over medium heat until just brown.
Add onions and simmer until they JUST start getting soft. Add tomatoes, simmer still at medium and toss frequently until they are cooked down but still have some chunks. Add in scallops toss gently until cooked.
Season with salt and pepper, mix and serve.

Serves 3 people
