Recipe of the Week: Lee Holmes’ Sautéed Scallops
Welcome to a new section we’re rolling out on Husskie: Recipe of the Week! At Husskie, we’ve spotted a lot of influencers in the food space doing pretty incredible things in the kitchen… so we thought it time we put a little spotlight on them.
First off the rank is Lee Holmes from Supercharged Food. The author of seven cookbooks and a growing influencer in the food space – Lee is constantly creating meals that pretty much have us wiping off the drool from the corners of our mouth.
For her Recipe of the Week, Lee talks us through how to make her sautéed scallops with mushrooms and spinach. Discussing the recipe, Lee says: “For many of us, seafood dishes are daunting; certainly not the recipes you want to try at home.
“I love my Sautéed scallops with mushroom and spinach, from my latest book, Fast Your Way to Wellness, because it shows you just how easy it is to make restaurant-quality seafood in your own home! This dish is a simple celebration of light oceanic flavours, contrasted with woody herbs and savoury mushrooms, finalised with a final zing of lemon to bring it to life.”
