From the Test Kitchen

We’re pulling out all the stops. For the second time in Blue Apron history, we have the privilege of offering you scallops. Scallops roam seas the world over. Their bright shells with fluted, fanned ridges are unmistakable−as is their flavor. Delicate and subtly briny, we’ve chosen to prepare the scallop simply. Finished with purslane, an almost lemony herb with a peppery kick, this gourmet dish is pure elegance.
