One of my favorite shows to watch on weekend mornings is Lidia’s Kitchen. It airs on our local PBS station and I just love it. I have no idea how long she’s been on there but I discovered the show about a year ago. I love Italian food and I find her recipes fresh and delicious and her passion for cooking is contagious. A week or so ago she made scallops and I decided Lidia’s scallops were going on our dinner plate that night.
Lidia’s scallop were a weekend recipe since it took a bit of time and I’m unfamiliar with cooking scallops so I didn’t want to be rushed. I wanted to focus on this dish to get it just right since scallops can overcook so easily or get rubbery. I didn’t want to have my newest kitchen adventure turn into a disaster.
Lidia’s Scallops & Mushrooms
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 Large clove garlic (crushed)
- 4oz white button mushrooms (sliced)
- 8oz baby bella mushrooms (sliced)
- 2-3 scallions (chopped)
- 1 Medium zucchini (sliced)
- 2 tablespoons fresh oregano
- 1/2 cup chardonnay wine
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1/2 - 3/4lb sea scallops
- ground pepper to taste
- Balsamic Vinegar (to drizzle)
Hubby loved Lidia’s scallops as much as I did and the end result was just as I expected after watching her show. She gives a nice step by step presentation that can be easily copied at home. She made scallops less intimidating and I’m excited to try other seafood recipes.
