haha I dunno if this will help or hurt my post about scallops earlier, but as my b-day present to my parents (yes, my birthday) I cooked them my proscuitto wrapped scallops, and remembered to take pictures this time – I was amazed at the seafood prices out east! I pay at least twice in the midwest for “fresh” seafood ($17/lb of sea scallops) as I did out here ($8.50/lb). Amazing what location can do – while I am out here I will be eating and cooking seafood like it is my job while it is so readily available for me
By the way, food is very very difficult to photograph, this looked and tasted a lot yummier than it photographed.
Scallops cooking in yummy butter – you cannot try to be healthy and have this taste nearly as good:
Plated with pasta (my parents didn’t have linguine, so angel hair had to do), wine cream sauce, and LOTS of basil – and yes, I realized after I plated that the portion sizes were WAY too big, but mmm this is one of my favorite dishes and my eyes are always bigger than my stomach I also need a lot of help in plating so it looks pretty – anyone know of local “food plating” classes? haha I guess I just need a more artistic eye and a much steadier hand…
