Quick Sauteed Scallops & Kale Dinner

This was a quick and easy Paleo meal. Today's CrossFit WOD totally wiped me out, and all I've been thinking about since my 10 am class, was ... BED! I scoured the cupboards and refrigerator and came up with this easy (ingredients on hand) meal. Not too shabby. It has the potential to be great. But tonight, I just needed good. This fit the bill perfectly.
... hope you enjoy!

1 bunch kale, pulled from stem and torn in large pieces
1/2 yellow pepper
garlic, 2 cloves, minced
Shallots, diced (about 1/4 C)
1/4 C white wine
1 T lemon juice
1/2 lb. scallops (about 14 large)
2 T olive oil, divided
black pepper and sea salt (optional)

Heat 1 T olive oil in pan. Sprinkle salt and pepper over scallops. Saute scallops for about 5 minutes, until no longer raw looking. Remove, and set aside. In the same pan, add some more olive oil and saute shallots until they're slightly transparent. Add garlic, saute a couple minutes, and then add the yellow bell pepper... saute a few more minutes. Add wine to the pan, scraping all the flavored bits. Now add the kale and lemon juice. Cover and cook for about 5-8 minutes. When kale is done, add the scallops back to the pan and cook just a bit longer (2-3 minutes).
Garnish with a bit of fresh ground black pepper and serve! Quick - Easy - Paleo ! Enjoy !

Have a wonderful and safe Memorial Weekend!

*Don't forget... next week is the last week of the Paleo challenge!
Make plans to finalize your stats!!! See you next week! :-)
