Pan Seared Heart of Palm

In my last post I introduced you all to Heart of Palm in my vegetarian take on a Scampi Alfredo. I figured that I'd share a little more in detail on how I prepared the Heart of Palm in case you would like it as a standalone dish.

RELATED: Vegetarian Scampi Alfredo

Heart of Palm is an interesting vegetable that I didn't expect to turn out the way it had. I'll admit that I when I first removed it from the can, I was a bit thrown off by its appearance. I did the typical "taste test" by licking it and smelling until I realized it really didn't have a taste or odor.

Heart of Palm reminds me a bit of tofu because it take on whatever it is seasoned or flavored with. You can basically transform it however you wish.



Serving Size: 4-6 servings

Pan Seared Heart of Palm

Ingredients:
  • 1 can of Heart of Palm
  • 1 tbsp of Old Bay seasoning salt
  • 1 tbsp of butter
  • 1/2 lemon
  • Garlic powder and pepper to taste

Directions:
  • Remove your Heart of Palm from the can and rinse the excess salt off. Begin dicing into 1/2 inch rounds
  • Sprinkle salt, pepper, and garlic pwoder to your Heart of Palm to taste. I used a very small amont of salt, but you can add in more to your liking
  • In a frying pan on medium to high heat, add your butter to melt a bit until pan is coated. Add your Heart of Palm to the pan
  • As Heart of Palm is searing, you will squeeze half of your lemon over top. 
  • Ocassionally flip over Stir Heart of Palm so that the each side gets a brown coating
  • Allow Heart of Palm to cook until both sides are cooked or brown




And that's all to it. It really doesn't take a long time to prepare. It satisfied that fishy scallop craving I was having and turned out great. Give it a try!

  12. I’ve never personally had these, but my husband has and he loves them. Pan seared is the best way to cook so many things.
