Seafood always sounds like a romantic dinner item, however, I am often intimidated when making it. We are featuring two meals this week that you can cook for someone you love and they both involve seafood. I think this is great because it gives you some options and you can make a nice meal at home for less. When I found this scallop recipe a few years back, we served it for a New Year’s Eve dinner and everyone loved it. If I would have known how easy it was, I would have done it long before. A local restaurant here in town makes there own scallop sauce that is to die for (but it’s a secret recipe) so that definitely makes the scallops even better. Maybe a local restaurant where you are has a similar sauce. We serve scallops with a vegetable, such as steamed asparagus and rice or potatoes. It’s the perfect meal for someone you love.
