    Oh the month of traditional family recipes – I’m really loving this kind of cooking! It’s been a great reminder that you can make delicious dishes with simple, fresh ingredients. I hope you’ll enjoy this easy dinner of scallops in a lemon-caper sauce and roasted veggies. It’s healthy, it’s bursting with flavor, and it’s very easy to prepare.

    Add the scallops to your pan when the butter is melted and has started to brown. You only need to cook scallops for about a minute on each side – let them get brown and don’t overcook!

    *If you’re not a fan of full capers, you can put the lemon-caper sauce in the blender for a few seconds – it will have a more creamy consistency.
