Wine, Pasta and Scallops

It is already November, where has the time gone. I have been wanting to expand my taste for seafood more and have wanted to try sushi and scallops. I will only try sushi with my sisters, as they know the good stuff and where to get it. I tried scallops for the first time when we were out for a family gathering earlier in October. They were grilled and really good, but I was interested in trying seared scallops. 

I stopped by the Co-op a few weeks back and found fresh scallops in the seafood section. I was super excited, Carl not so much; he is not a seafood lover like me. I  searched and searched for a great scallop recipe and found one on the Food Network website.

I found a Seared Scallop recipe by Alton Brown on the site. It was a great recipe because it was easy to follow and showed a step by step video.  I thought it would be best to pair the scallops with a yummy pasta and set out to search for that online as well.  Of course one of my favorite cooks delivered, I found this yummy pasta by Giada De Laurentiis, also on the Food Network. It was a Spaghetti with Garlic, Olive Oil and Red Pepper Flakes recipe and was really good and easy to make; I had all the ingredients in my cupboards. It was a bit spicy because of the red pepper flakes but still delicious.

I do substitute the gluten ingredients with gluten-free ones and it works out great and a majority of you time you can not tell the difference.  And obviously, we drank that with a bottle of wine! 🙂

Here is my picture of our yummy supper.


Happy seafood eating and wine drinking.

  1. I’m not a big seafood fan but I’ve recently also been trying to eat/try more of it. I’ve found that I really like scallops, too (still working on actually wanting to try sushi, though). Now I’ll have to try the scallop and pasta recipes!
