  • 1 bag of Marine Del Rey Wild Caught Icelandic Scallops
  • 1/8 teaspoon of salt and pepper more or less to taste
  • 4 Tablespoons of unsalted butter divided
  • 2 cloves of garlic minced
  • 1/4 cup of drained capers
  • 1/2 cup of vegetable stock
  • 1 lemon sliced
  • 1/3 cup of coconut cream up to 2 cups— more or less depending on how saucy you like your scallops piccata to be
  • 2 tablespoons of chopped fresh parsley leaves


  1. Season your scallops with salt and pepper.
  2. Over high heat, preheat a non stick or cast iron skillet with 2 tablespoons of butter.
  3. Add the scallops to the skillet and wait for at least 3 minutes until the scallops are seared and golden. Flip the scallops and sear on the other side for another 2-3 minutes.
  4. Remove the scallops from the skillet, keeping the stove on but lower the heat to medium.
  5. Add the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter to the same skillet and when it melts, add in the garlic.
  6. Sautee the garlic for a minute and add in the capers and stock.
  7. Let the mixture boil and simmer for 5 minutes until it has reduced to half.
  8. Add in some lemon slices, the seared scallops and toss them for a minute allowing the lemon slices to soften up a little.
  9. Then add in the cream, toss the sauce together and let it cook for another minute. Turn off the heat and add in the parsley.
  10. Serve over pasta, rice, with a crusty bread and salad, and enjoy! :)
