I bought salmon and scallops yesterday, with the plans of cooking with them the next two days. It’s Monday night, I did not make it home until almost 7:00pm. I still want to cook dinner, I find the recipe for Scallops with Lemon Orzo that I found in Food Network magazine last week, with only a 35 min prep time, I can make this work! While the orzo was cooking, I chopped up all the ingredients. I modified the processes slightly, used spinach instead or arugula and mixed the sauce and orzo together prior to serving.
I like my scallops over-cooked. I know, bad. I don’t like seeing any “jelly” in the middle, like it white all the way through. Tonight, I envisioned myself in Hell’s Kitchen being called a donkey for rubber scallops. I followed the directions for cooking and loved them!
This recipe was amazing, great lemon flavor. My husband requested this be added to a frequent rotation of weekday meals.
Thanks Food Network!
