Seared scallops, new potatoes, green beans 7/26/22

Seared scallops and steamed new potatoes and green beans

This is a simple but delicious dinner. The potatoes start first in a steamer basket over boiling water. They take 15 to 20 minutes. When they are done I put them in a covered bowl to keep warm and after adding more water to the steamer pot I add the green beans. In the meantime John heats our cast iron pan with a little neutral oil. In the time it takes to steam the beans the scallops are seared with a small dollop of butter at the end of cooking. I add a spritz of butter spray and some chopped chives and tarragon to the beans. A slice of lemon is all that is needed to complete our plates.
