Spicy Scallops

spicy scallops

One of my favorite things to do is mix ingredients and flavors and come up with new easy throw together recipes. This dish is one of them. The process is so simple yet the outcome is elegant and very flavorful. The scallops are the main focus of this dish, and are buttery, tender and full of their own natural flavors.



Ingredients

1 lb. of fresh medium size scallops
1/2 of a box of wide linguini noodles
2 Tbs. butter
2 Tbs. olive oil
2 tsp. lemon pepper seasoning
2 tsp. spicy Italian seasoning
1/2 cup of any white wine
1/2 cup of heavy whipping cream
fresh cracked pepper


Directions

Cook your noodles according to the package and set aside. In a medium high skillet melt your butter add your olive oil. Add your scallops and letting them sear for about 2 minutes. Add your seasoning, more or less can be added depending on your taste. Let the scallops cook for another 2 minutes. Add the white wine, degassing the pan, then slowly add your cream. Stir all together, add your pasta to the pan. Let your sauce thicken, serve hot.

Enjoy!
