Scallops with Red Pepper Sauce

 Scallops with Red Pepper Sauce
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.
2 ServingsPrep/Total Time: 20 min.


  • 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


  • 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.
