INGREDIENTS: (1-2 SERVINGS)

  • 5-1o Scallops.
  • 1 bunch of Asparagus (fresh).
  • 1 whole Plantain.
  • 1 can of red beans.
  • Brown Rice (I used 2 cups, cooked).
  • 1/4 red onion (chopped and sautéed).
  • Fresh chopped parsley (garnish).
  • SPICES: “I’m a Jerk” by @legionofspice seasoning, seasoning salt, garlic salt, paprika, fresh ground pepper, red pepper flakes, shredded coconut, EVOO.

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Start by cooking your rice and boil it with you 1/4 red onion in the water.
  2. While your rice is cooking, marinate your scallops with “I’m A Jerk” rub and seasoning.
  3. In a hot sauté  pan lined with EVOO, place your scallops, flipping them over to sear, and lock in the flavor.
  4. In another pan/pot with low water and boiled high temp,  steam your asparagus.
  5. In another frying pan, heat  EVOO to high heat. Drop in your sliced plantains and  deep fry. Flip them a few times sprinkling in garlic salt to season them lightly. The sweet and garlic make a GREAT compliment, trust! Once done, remove them from the oil and drop them in a bowl lined with a paper towel to remove excess oil.
  6. Once your rice is done (or
  7. Heated up), add in your strained red beans and add: red pepper flakes, black pepper, seasoning salt, and a few pinches of I’m A Jerk”  seasoning to kick it up! Stir occasionally to mix all ingredients together and lock in the flavors.
  8. Add a little bit of water to your scallops and cover with a lid to steam them out and finish them to buttery soft perfection.
  9. Time to plate and enjoy!
