Fresh Scallops anyone? I went to one market. Out. I went to a second market. Out. Finally, I went to a third - and I got the last bit! Were they just that popular this weekend? I've actually never made scallops before; however, this week, I got a craving. In the past I've tasted some pretty "fishy" versions, but these were wonderful. (Of course you have to like seafood, to enjoy this dish). They were easy to make too!
*I put salt and pepper on all, and then dredged them in flour (gluten and wheat free flour, that is). Browned them on both sides in unsalted butter, then added a bit more butter and finely chopped shallots, garlic and parsley. After another 2 minutes I added a bit of dry white wine and let it cook off, making a delightful sauce (thanks to the bit of flour that was on the scallops). Totally good and not "fishy" at all!
I paired it with some rice (with added scallions, parsley and dill), and a fresh raspberry salad. The meal was light and fun. In the future I'd pair it with some red potatoes though and skip the rice. If you're looking for a different flavor for dinner - this just might hit the spot!
Happy Monday to you all!!!!
