Our Carb Conscious recipes have 42g or less of net carbohydrates (total carbohydrates minus dietary fiber) per serving, a 25% reduction in net carbs compared to the average Blue Apron recipe served in 2019. Due to the natural variation in size of and contribution of produce in our recipes, some recipes can be badged as Carb Conscious at 45g or less net carbs per serving.

Our Mediterranean recipes are inspired by the Mediterranean Diet, a healthy eating plan recommended in the Dietary Guidelines for Americans published jointly every five years by the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) and the Department of Health & Human Services (DHHS). This eating plan highlights the flavors and cooking styles from countries along the Mediterranean Sea, including those in Europe, the Middle East, and North Africa. These recipes showcase a wide variety of vegetables, fruits, and whole grains, as well as lean proteins and moderate portions of dairy.

From the Test Kitchen

WHY WE LOVE THIS DISH
For 4 weeks, Blue Apron is honored to be partnering with Chef Roy Yamaguchi—an award winning, Japanese-American chef and co-founder of Hawaii Regional Cuisine—to bring you a series of recipes that showcase his passion for blending techniques from his classical French restaurant training with the sunny flavors of Hawaii. Here, we’re using homemade beurre blanc (a classic French butter sauce) and a mix of soy glaze and dijon to drizzle over togarashi-seared scallops for a unique, rich flavor combo you won’t forget!

tips & techniques
Prepare the ingredients & make the soy mustard
1 Prepare the ingredients & make the soy mustard

Wash and dry the fresh produce. Peel the radish; quarter lengthwise, then thinly slice crosswise. Peel and roughly chop 2 cloves of garlic. Thinly slice the scallions. Cut the butter into small pieces. In a bowl, combine the soy glaze and mustard.

Cook & finish the rice
2 Cook & finish the rice

In a medium pot, combine the rice, a big pinch of salt, and 1 1/2 cups of water. Heat to boiling on high. Once boiling, reduce the heat to low. Cover and cook, without stirring, 15 to 17 minutes, or until the water has been absorbed and the rice is tender. Turn off the heat and fluff with a fork; stir in the sautéed aromatics. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired.

Cook the vegetables
3 Cook the vegetables

Meanwhile, in a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 1 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the sliced radish; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 minutes, or until slightly softened. Add the snow peas, chopped garlic, and half the sliced scallions; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 minutes or until softened. Transfer to a bowl. Wipe out the pan.

Sear the scallops
4 Sear the scallops

Pat the scallops dry with paper towels. Using your hands, remove and discard the tough side muscle from each scallop. Season on both sides with salt, pepper, and the togarashi. In the same pan, heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned scallops in an even layer. Cook 4 to 5 minutes, or until browned. Flip and cook 1 to 2 minutes, or until lightly browned and cooked through. Turn off the heat. Transfer to a plate; cover with foil to keep warm. Rinse and wipe out the pan.

Make the beurre blanc & serve your dish
5 Make the beurre blanc & serve your dish

To the same pan, add the remaining sliced scallions, verjus, and vinegar. Heat on medium and cook, without stirring, 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until most of the liquid has cooked off. Add the cream. Cook, whisking occasionally, 1 to 2 minutes, or until heated through and slightly thickened. Turn off the heat and gradually whisk in the butter pieces until thoroughly combined and emulsified. (If the sauce is too thick, gradually whisk in 1 teaspoon of water at a time to reach your desired consistency.) Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired. Serve the cooked scallops with the finished rice and cooked vegetables. Top the scallops with the beurre blanc and soy mustard. Garnish the rice and vegetables with the furikake and crispy onions. Enjoy!
