Easy Scallops and Fettuccine ala Scampi

This is another of our what’s in the freezer cause we didn’t give a thought to dinner recipes.   Luckily we had scallops and they defrost quite quickly.  In this photo we used both bay and ocean scallops but you can certainly use just one or the other.

This recipe will serve 2 to 4 people depending on what you add to the meal.

Ingredients for Easy Scallops and Fettuccine ala Scampi
  1. 8oz or more per person Scallops
  2. 2 Tbs butter & 1 Tbs Olive oil
  3. ½# butter melted
  4. 3-4 finely chopped cloves of garlic
  5. 3-4 Tbs Capers
  6. Juice of 1 lemon + Zest
  7. chopped parsley
  8. Parmesan cheese (optional)
  9. 1# Fettuccine cooked

Directions for Easy Scallops and Fettuccine ala Scampi

In a small sauce pan melt the butter with the garlic, capers and lemon juice and zest.

Start the Fettuccine cooking as per directions on the box.

In a sauté pan large enough to hold the scallops in a single layer on medium heat melt the 2 Tbs of butter with the Olive oil and once hot add the scallops and cook until lightly browned on all sides and cooked through.

There are 2 schools of thought to serving:

  1. In a large bowl place the pasta, scallops, and sauce and mix well and serve.
  2. Allow each person to plate their own pasta and add the scallops and sauce as they wish.

Garnish with the chopped parsley and if you want serve with Parmesan cheese on the side.

The whole meal can be prepared in the time it takes the pasta to cook.

Fettuccine ala roast beef would be more to my liking but this was palatable.  3 paws for the no beef meal.
