I was in a hurry to make dinner. Heres is what I did. Took out a bottle of dry white wine. Dijon Mustard. Garlic. handful of fresh basil. My best extra virgin olive oil. Cherry tomatoes. Parsley. I was in so much of a hurry i didn’t even 1/2 the tomatoes which i normally do. You could also cut up the scallops and make this like a clam sauce. The tomatoes whole burst either in your fork or mouth . Still good.
Cleaned the greens in my mini salad spinner
Cleaned the scallops by simply rinsing them in cold water and taking off the side muscle.
Took out a pasta pan filled with water and boiled it.
Into my food processor (my little one) I tossed in some basil leaves, a drizzle of the olive oil and a garlic clove, salt and pepper.. Gave it a whiz and added some lemon zest.
Took out a saute pan. Into the pan I added about 2 tbls evoo. Let it get hot, put in the large scallops and sauteed about 2 minutes or each side. To this I added the pesto and some wine about 1/2 cup along with 1/2 teapoon dijon mustard sauteed
Covered the pan and cooked another 2 minutes till sauce was a little thicker from the dijon and scallops were cooked through. Added fresh parsley and served over spaghetti.
Simple took 20 minutes.
