We wanted to have something different for dinner this week, so Austin suggested scallops! Scallops - and other types of shellfish - are very lean sources of protein 🦐 Now that it’s getting warmer, it’s getting easier to find fresh seafood around and it makes me so happy ☀️ I served mine drizzled with a little homemade honey mustard with rosemary potatoes and broccoli 😋
⚠️ Note: I use coconut oil for this recipe because it has one of the lower smoking points for plant-based oils. Tropical oils are higher in saturated fat, so I don’t use this all the time!
