Scallops with Parmesan Risotto and Spinach



I spend A LOT of time on Pinterest, collecting images of stuff I want to do. They don't call me Downeast DOING STUFF for nothing! ( Well, I call myself that....) But I find that I collect more stuff than I'll ever do.


After going to the lawyers today to draft a will, etc. I realized how times flies and now I'm paying someone and telling someone what to do when I'm DEAD!


So I better get cracking on Pinterest.

Here's the first......a recipe.


 Working on the Risotto. It's a full time, 20 minute job.


 Saute some chopped onions ( supposed to be Shallots, but I didn't have any.) in butter and Olive Oil, to get ready for the scallops.


 Add Parmesan Cheese to the rice.


 Wilt the Spinach in the butter left from cooking the Scallops.


 Seared Scallops.
(Jersey girl, me, pronounced Scallops
Mainiacs say Scollops, or something like that.)


 Spinach with a big dollop of Risotto and then the Scallops.

DEEEE lish!!

We have lots of cukes in the garden, so I thinly sliced them (on a box grater), salted them and let them sit in a colander for a while to withdraw a lot of the liquid, add thinly sliced onions, pepper, sugar to taste and vinegar. Makes  a sort of sweet and sour dressing. Toss. I served this with the Scallops.


I would have served this with wine, but we already had two Pina Coladas each, so we had water.


Thank you Pinterest.
One down, 4 million to go....

Oh My! This looks scrumptious. It is such a gourmet dish that you can only eat in fine dining restaurants. Now, we can eat it in our home. Thanks for sharing the recipe with us.

That would be divine with a chilled white wine. Mouthwatering. Thanks for sharing it. (In South Australia we say scollops - very popular too)
