i remembered your previous post about your love affair with scallops while doing my grocery shopping yesterday. so i decided to get half a pound, enough for two servings. too bad you’re not close enough for me to cook you this meal. this is quite similar to the mussels dish i had a couple of months back.
2 teaspoons butter (or olive oil), minced garlic, bay scallops, fresh or dried parsley, salt and pepper, bread crumbs, parmesan and linguine
boil the pasta until al dente. set aside.
in a separate pan, melt the butter. sauté the garlic until golden brown. toss in the bay scallops, parsley, salt and pepper. cook for no more than 2 minutes. if you cook the scallops for too long, they become chewy and lose their flavor. split the pasta between two plates or bowls. add the scallops. sprinkle some bread crumbs (preferably parmesan or italian flavor) and parmesan. serve with hot rolls.
