For the Love of Scallops

I had a taste for scallops and this is what I came up with

Seared Scallops with a stir-fry of asparagus and seafood mix served with orzo

Oh there they are. Make sure there is not excess moisture on them to ensure a nice sear, so pat dry with a paper towel very well

Sear time! In a smattering of very hot oil, just a few minutes per side

Sauteing our chopped asparagus, onion, bell pepper

And also getting the calamari, mussels, shrimp, and bay scallops ready

Sauteed some water chestnuts

Mixed it all together….let everyone get all acquainted with one another

A closer look….this is making me happy

The seafood has made it’s entrance, as well as a few sliced cherry tomatoes

Another closer look after adding sliced scallions

Plated with the scallops and orzo and chopped fresh basil

Well I just have to get a closer look again

Yes…for the love of scallops!

A cut through tells me that they were cooked quite nicely

Yes, one more close-up

Later that day, there was just one lone mussel left, filled with all of its goodies
