Apple Balsamic Scallops Seared w Potato Mash

These Apple Balsamic Scallops with Potato Mash are a great choice for a special dinner. Probably not a family meal but still healthy and a hit with guests. I love the flavor the combination of apple cider vinegar and balsamic vinegar give when combined.

Based on the tests and recommendations of different nutritionists these are one of the healthiest fish to eat. They are loaded with omega-3 fatty acids and nutrients. Seafood is one of the healthiest proteins but not all seafood provides the same health benefits.

Scallops are probably the best source of magnesium and potassium among the shellfish. Each is important for heart and brain health. Scallops also help with better blood vessels, keep blood pressure normal, and aid in circulation. 3 ounces of scallops are only 75 calories with 15 grams of protein and only a gram of fat.

Combine these benefits and a meal of Apple Balsamic Scallops with Potato Mash just makes good sense.
