Big Easy Shrimp,Scallop,and Chicken Breast Rigatoni !

Postby woodenvisions » Thu Jul 06, 2017 7:58 pm

Well, I decided to try out the Big Easy tonight with the ever so easy to overcook and dry out Scallops !
Just as I suspected, they turned out to be the Absolute BEST and moistest Scallops I've ever cooked and possibly had ever eaten!
Made two types of sauce, one was a Soy Sauce, Brown Sugar, Garlic and Molasses and the other was a melted butter, Cayenne and Chili Powder to drizzle over the Scallops.
The wifey said both were home runs and a dish to put in the ( Do Again ) file :):)

Threw them in some Alfredo Sauce with Scallions,Rigatoni,Shrimp and Chicken.
Did up some sweet Jersey corn with butter, Slap Ya Mama and Old Bay, and Grated Romano.
The Brown Sugar Scallops were left on the side.

Can't wait to test the Big Easy with a Lobstah...ImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImage

Oh man, really Russ ?

Can you go online and get some flash frozen shipped to you ?

I only get the Sea scallops that are all different sizes. If I see a bag of Scallops all the same size, I pass em up..
Sometimes we get lucky and get one or two of the pink ones in the mix.

Nelson scallops are the best I've ever eaten, I normally have 4 or 5 dozen in the freezer, but I can get others. But nelson are by the far best. I will just wait til they become available and stock up. I think they have been closed for a year, maybe 1 more year to let them grow?? I won't risk going on line, I'm happy to wait.

No worries about that Chris,

I've found that most likely the ones all the same size are ( Farm Raised ).

I'm not a fan of any farm raised seafood, just a personal preference.
