Every Wednesday, Whole Foods updates their weekly specials. If you have a smartphone, you can download their app and find out what their coupon and sale specials are. Ending today unfortunately, is their sale on USA wild caught Marine Stewardship Council Certified Sea Scallops for $18.99/lb. I know that is expensive, considering Wegmans had local scallops for $14.99/lb. back in September/October. Since my husband and I would be having dinner together, we decided to splurge. I had a craving for pasta, so I dug up a recipe I haven't done in awhile.
Many years ago, my sister was given the recipe for Capellini with Scallops, Shrimp or Clams by her friend Carol. I've always made this recipe with shrimp, but this time I tried the scallops. It tasted just fine with scallops as it does with shrimp. It's a two pot meal, and can be made in under 30 minutes if you prep your garlic and shallots ahead. You'll also need some white wine, not cooking wine, use the real deal. Buon appétit!
