Satisfy your Tastebuds with Greek Scallops

For a delicious light meal in between the holiday feasts, try the Greek-Style Scallops in today’s Health-e-Recipe. This dish features fresh tomatoes, olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, parsley, oregano, feta and pine nuts — all staples of classic Mediterranean cuisine. Plus, this combination of flavors complements the scallops perfectly while supplying your body with cancer-fighting phytochemicals.

It’s a perfect example of how a low-calorie dish brimming with sensational taste can satisfy you in a healthy way instead of your having to rely on high calorie meals full of saturated fats from big portions of meat, cheese and refined grains.

Scallops themselves have 6.5 grams of protein in only 1 ounce — so a 3-ounce serving gives you almost one-third of your daily requirement while containing approximately 100 calories (before adding any other ingredients). Scallops also contain some omega-3 fatty acids, which may help prevent heart disease and possibly cancer (although scallops don’t contain as much as fatty fish such as salmon and albacore tuna). You can substitute other kinds of fish or shellfish for the scallops in this recipe.

Serve it with a steamed green vegetable, such as broccoli or string beans, and brown rice or another whole grain. For more tasty cancer-fighting recipes, visit AICR’s Test Kitchen. Click here to subscribe to weekly Health-e-Recipes.
