martha's vineyard bay scallops
Help! I just snagged about a pound of fresh bay scallops from Martha's Vineyard and am looking for suggestions for dinner for 2 tomorrow night. I figure that simple preparation is the best, but what would really maximize the flavor? And what about side dishes? Wine pairing? I am so excited (ok at $30/lb here in Chicago I also don't want to screw it up!).
We love them, and have had them a few times during this way too short 3-4 week season.
Because they are so small and delicate, the simpler the better. I tossed them in melted butter, put a sprinkling of bread crumbs on top and broiled just until the bread crumbs toast....you have to watch it very closely, it takes just a few minutes. Serve with lemon wedges and enjoy.
I served them with a rice pilaf and a nice Reisling.
I also had some, just sauteed in olive oil with garlic. Reisling sounds right, one of my favorites.
