I’m trying out a new Mediterranean cookbook. It’s a diet my co-worker told me about and it’s pretty good. For lunch today I made the Mediterranean Scallops. It was quick and easy and so good I wanted to share it with you all. You will need to set the oven at 450 degrees.

  • Yield: 1 serving
  • Total: 15 minutes
  • Active: 5 minutes

Ingredients (8)

  • 3 ounces sea or bay scallops
  • 1 ounce sun dried tomato diced
  • 1/2 tsp tomato paste
  • 2 tsp dill, chopped
  • 2 tsp garlic, diced
  • 1 cup rice pilaf cooked
  • 2 tsp water
  • 3 tbsp Ayhan’s Lemon and Herb Dressing (www.ayhansmarketplace.com)


  1. Place scallops in casserole dish or baking pan.
  2. In separate bowl, mix tomato paste with remaining ingredients (except rice).
  3. Pour mixture over scallops and bake at 450 degrees until tender or ten minutes.
  4. Prepare rice according to package directions, without adding any butter or oil.
  5. Place scallops over rice and drizzle remaining liquid on top.
