  • Wash the scallops and pat dry well with a paper towel.
  • Cook the pasta in salted water, drain and toss with 1 tbsp of oil to keep it from sticking.

  • Season the scallops with salt and pepper and grill for about a minute on each side, or until just cooked.

  1. This was easy, however, I feel it contained too much evoo and not enough wine, so I reversed the quantities. However it was bland so I added the liquid from cooking the scallops added more wine, salt and pepper and sicilian spice. I feel it would benefit from browning the garlic in butter and then chopping. Since we are not able to acquire arugula in this remote area I substituted spinach. Please taste as you go, so you can layer the flavors that mean something to you. This is a great beginning.
  2. Far too much olive oil. That's all I tasted when I cooked this. When I try it again, I intend to use just enough olive oil to saute the scallops.
  3. Thank you for posting this delicious and very easy-to-make dish! My garlic cloves weren't very large, so I used 3. Because I did not have arugula or white wine, I had to use chicken broth and chopped fresh basil to taste. We also topped the dish with fresh parmesan. YUM -- It was fabulous! I know the recipe will be great as written, so I am giving it 5*.
  4. amazing recipe! The only change I made was to use chicken broth in place of white wine. A definite keeper!
  5. Yum! I only made enough for one serving because I was cooking roast lamb for Little Miss (DD) and Hubby (I don't eat red meat). I did a little short cut and cooked the scallops first in a the same pan as the garlic/wine/lemon juice just to save wash up time. I also couldn't find baby arugula or rocket, so I used baby spinach and also used non alcoholic white wine. I topped it off with a handful of Parmesan cheese. Thank you so much Katanashrp for posting your recipe.
