Sauteed Scallops & Shrimp Pasta Tips
Do you rinse scallops before cooking them?
It is never a bad idea to rinse scallops in cold water prior to cooking with them. Pat dry with a paper towel before proceeding with the recipe.
What else goes well with scallops?
Scallops go very well with grilled or roasted vegetables, such as red peppers, zucchini, mushrooms, eggplant or tomatoes, or seared and served on a bed of sauteed greens, such as spinach or chard. Bacon-wrapped scallops
are a tasty, popular appetizer. Scallops also pair beautifully with citrus, like a lemon-butter sauce or citrus vinaigrette.
