Scallops with Red Pepper Sauce Recipe

Scallops with Red Pepper Sauce Recipe

When scallop season is open here in Nova Scotia, I use scallops fresh from the ocean. This dish is quick and easy yet tastes delicious.
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 20 min. YIELD:2 servings

Ingredients

  • 4 ounces uncooked linguine
  • 1/4 pound fresh or frozen sea scallops, sliced into thin rounds
  • 1/2 cup diced sweet red pepper
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese

Directions

  • 1. Cook linguine according to package directions. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, saute the scallops, sweet red pepper, garlic, pepper flakes and salt in oil until scallops become firm and opaque. Remove from the heat. Drain pasta. Serve scallop mixture with linguine. Sprinkle with Parmesan. Yield: 2 servings.

"Was very good but next time I would add a homemade Parmesan sauce over everything instead of just grated Parmesan cheese, I also used roasted red peppers instead of the ones called for and added some onion!"
