Once every couple of months or so, I cook my husband a really elaborate meal. I plan a menu, send him an invitation, we eat while listening to operas and make a whole evening of it. It’s excessive, ridiculous, oh-so-cheesy and I love everything about it… my husband loves the food, the rest I think he just partakes in to placate me (Lol)! We had one of these dinners over the weekend and it worked out well because the weather was terrible all weekend so this gave us something to do. For the first course I served the chilled cucumber mint soup from my previous post, and this was our second course. I pan seared chorizo and scallops then drizzled them with a deliciously simple dressing and garnished them with a touch of roasted red peppers and parsley. Up until last year, I didn’t eat seafood… not because I didn’t like it but because I hadn’t really tried most of it and wasn’t eager to start. Luckily, I had a change of heart because the more I cook it, the more I love it. This dish was just a starter course for us so I made a small portion, but you could easily modify it to serve as the main course. Click here to get the recipe and see how it’s made!
