Honeyed Scallops

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 20 minutes
Servings 4 people


  • 2 tablespoons ghee or use olive oil, divided
  • 1 pound scallops 16 to 20
  • sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 3 tablespoons raw honey
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons tomato paste


  • Heat 1 tablespoon of ghee (or olive oil) in a large skillet over medium-high heat; add scallops, season with salt and pepper and cook for about 2 minutes per side (keep an eye on the scallops while they’re cooking because they can become rubbery very quickly if over-cooked).
  • Remove from the skillet. To the same skillet, add remaining ghee (or olive oil), honey, lemon juice and tomato paste; reduce heat to medium and whisk mixture until well blended; serve sauce over scallops.


SERVING SUGGESTION: Cauli-Rice (process cauliflower in a blender or food processor until it resembles grains of rice; steam “rice” till tender; drain; salt and pepper to taste and fluff with a fork). Add a salad of baby spinach leaves, julienned carrot and red pepper, tossed with Leanne’s Basic Vinaigrette.
