The Skinny on Scallops

Scallops are not only incredibly delicious, they’re also good for your brain and nervous system. Three ounces of these saltwater shellfish can contain up to 18% of the DV for both vitamin B12 and zinc, essential for optimal brain function and nervous system development.

Prep Time

35 min


Scallops & veg

  • 2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • ½ tsp ground black pepper
  • ¼ tsp smoked paprika
  • 2 bunches broccolini, trimmed, thicker stalks cut in half lengthwise
  • 3 Roma tomatoes, quartered
  • 1 lb large sea scallops, muscle removed, patted dry


  • 4 tsp organic unsalted butter, divided
  • 2 leeks, trimmed, halved lengthwise, rinsed and sliced crosswise
  • 1/3 cup dry white wine
  • sea salt, to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 375ºF. Place a large baking sheet in the oven as it preheats.
  2. In a small bowl, mix together oil, garlic, salt, pepper and paprika. In a medium bowl, toss broccolini and tomatoes with one-half of oil mixture, reserving remaining half.
  3. Remove baking sheet from oven. Place broccolini and tomatoes on sheet. Roast until broccolini is tender and browning and tomatoes are blistered, about 18 minutes. Remove sheet from oven; increase oven temperature to 425ºF. Place scallops on sheet and spoon reserved oil mixture over top. Bake 8 to 10 minutes, until scallops are firm.
  4. Meanwhile, prepare leeks: In a large skillet on medium, melt one-half of butter. Add leeks and cook, stirring often, until very tender and golden in spots, 8 to 10 minutes. Pour in wine; cook, stirring occasionally, until most of wine has evaporated, 2 to 3 minutes. Add remaining one-half of butter in pieces, stirring, about 1 minute longer. Season with salt, to taste. Divide leeks among plates. Top with scallops and vegetables.
