It was one of those nights where I really didn't know what to make for dinner. I knew that I had some scallops but I didn't know what I wanted to do with them. I wanted something really simple. I knew that Dr Food was on his way home and hungry.
I poured myself a glass of wine and got started. The scallops were huge so I sliced them in half so that they would cook quickly and not dry out.
Of course I had to have a little music.
I knew the doctor was hungry so I made a little something something for him to eat while I was cooking. Padron's are still going strong in the garden however they are getting hotter and hotter.
Some butter and olive oil, garlic, and red pepper flakes. Yeah, it was getting a little brown there but I stopped it in time. I quickly browned the scallops in this mixture.
I cooked some pasta but I didn't get a picture of it because really I was in a hurry to get dinner on the table. I mixed it all together and grated some parmesan on it. Whipped up a salad and we were ready to eat.
There really is no recipe for this other than sauteing some scallops in a little butter and olive oil that has some garlic and red pepper flakes in it. I also added a glug of white wine. Mix with pasta and put some cheese on top. That is all there is to it.
