Jul 5: Supermarket Sushi; Seared Scallops with Sweet Corn and Chiles

Lunch

We picked up tray of Avocado and Cucumber Rolls, and a tray of Seared Albacore Tuna from Whole Foods and shared them for $9.99 per serve.

Dinner

We have a new high tech, non-stick frying pan that matches the Wok we already have, that gives us a good sear while still being non-stick. In regular non-stick pans it’s impossible to get a good sear.

We paired the Fresh Scallops from Whole Foods with Sweet Corn and Chiles which turned out really well even though we left out the cream.

  • The Scallops were $15.17 for just over half a pound, or $7.58 per serve
  • The corn was $1.00 or 50c per serve as we’re in peak corn season
  • A Jalappeno was 9c or 5c per serve
  • Add 15c for onion and other ingredients.

This was a really, really good meal for $8.28 per serve. The Scallops were perfectly seared but not over cooked. The Chile in the Corn balanced the sweetness with a subtle heat, and provided a perfect balance to the Scallops.
