Sherried Garlic Scallops with Asparagus & Cherry Tomatoes~Simply Delicious Sunday [7]

This is one of the simplest recipes and smells and tastes great too. It's the perfect romantic Valentines dinner. I served it with Parmesan Rolls.

30 small bay scallops (about 1/2 pound)
1/2 pound organic spaghetti or linguine
2 teaspoons minced jar garlic
1 bunch chopped green onions
4 Asparagus spears, tender tops cut into small pieces
8 cherry or grape tomatoes
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 cup cream sherry
shredded Parmesan cheese
  • In a medium skillet melt butter and oil together and bring to a medium high heat.
  • Add scallops and saute' well so that the scallops sear on the edges.
  • Add garlic and onions and continue sauteing about 5 minutes.
  • Add Asparagus tops and heat through.
  • Add sherry and lower heat and cook until a thick glaze sauce forms.
  • Add tomatoes and heat through.
  • Toss with prepared pasta.
  • Shred Parmesan on top and serve immediately.

Hey, Tamy, could you do me a favor? Could you make Simply Delicious Sunday a sticky post until like Tuesday night your time? Sometimes I have trouble finding it.

I made my cats asparagus & petite scallops on Saturday. I think that makes me a crazy cat lady.

That looks beyond fabulous! I'll show this entry to my daughter and I'm sure she'll have to try it a day this week. :)
