Seared Scallops with Arugula and Caramelized Onions

Striving to keep up with my goal of more posts this year here is another one!  I am also trying to get back to my routine of cooking several dishes on the weekend to make week days meals so much easier.  I really do enjoy creating several meals for the week!  All it takes is a little planning but once it is under way… me go!Seared Scallops with Arugula and Caramelized Onions

A really simple and quick recipe!


•    2 small yellow onions, diced
•    4 tbsp extra virgin olive oil, divided
•    2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
•    3 ounces baby arugula
•    1/2 lb large sea scallops, rinsed and patted dry
•    1/2 ounce crumbled feta cheese
•    Black pepper to taste


In a large skillet, heat 2 tablespoons olive oil over medium heat.  Add onions and cook until golden, stirring often, 15 – 20 minutes.  Deglaze skillet with balsamic vinegar.  Season to taste with black pepper.  Remove from heat and fold in arugula.

In another skillet, heat the remaining olive oil over high heat.  Add scallops and sear 1 -2 minutes per side.

Place arugula in the center on the plate and form a mound.  Place scallops on top and add feta.
