I picked up some bags of bay scallops on sale at Sprouts this week for $7. I usually cook their much larger brethren by searing and creating a pan sauce. I haven’t cooked bay scallops in ages. What’s your favorite way of cooking bay scallops?
Stir fry them “kung pao” style
Ceviche! Or a light, thin gazpacho, served in a shallow dish, with lightly seared bay scallops.
I may be too intimidated to trying to replicate Mei Lin’s Nightside…but it would be fun!
You’re in the privacy of your own home, what’s the worst that could happen?
Marcella Hazan has a simple, but very tasty recipe for a pasta sauce. Its just scallops, olive oil, garlic, pepper flakes and parsley with bread crumbs sprinkled on at the end. She recommends dried spaghettini as a noodle choice.
