1 (16 ounce) package
angel hair pasta
sea scallops, rinsed and patted dry
chopped fresh basil
chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
fresh lemon juice
salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
grated Parmesan cheese to taste
I really enjoyed this recipe and have now made this twice with only a few minor changes. I used only a small amount of butter and a bit of olive oil to saute the garlic and added some scallions. I also used both both scallops and large uncooked shrimp cooked with a bit of white wine and fresh squeezed lemon juice. Instead of cream I added a wedge of laughing cow lite cheese to thicken the sauce along with the freshly grated parmesean cheese. In a separate pan I cooked asparagus and a small amount of angel hair pasta cooked together with more basil and parsley and lemon juice. Once that was cooked I cut up the asparagus and added that along with the pasta to the scallops and shrimp. The second time I made this I used risotto and added the asparagus to the risotto. Both were delicious. I will definitley be making this often. Thank you Jim!
Wow. I was so disappointed in this recipe. I followed it exactly and thought it came out bland and tasteless (even after doubling the garlic). I also have a ton leftover.
Loved it...Made a few changes though...clam juice instead of lemon...added shrimp and red pepper flakes.
this was excellent! I skipped the pasta and served them over some steamed spinach and they were delicious! Thanks for a great recipe!
Delicious! Made a few minor changes, added peas and crumbled bacon. Will make again.
Oh my gosh Jim, what a wonderful recipe. I didn't change a thing. Very fresh tasting, a keeper!!!!
Simple ingredients, excellent and clear instructions. I am having a plate of this right now and it is absolutely delightful. :) Thank you, Jim!
My hubby loved it! So easy to make!!!!
