Seared Sea Scallops with Gingered Pea Purée and Cilantro Gremolata
Don’t get me wrong – I’m all for going out on the town with girlfriends, but sometimes it’s nice to switch things up and bring the party inside for a relaxing dinner soirée. We decided to dine in style by serving up some seared sea scallops, preceded by a cheese and cracker spread. This scallop recipe (courtesy of food52.com, found here) is the perfect light yet luxurious alternative to steak, as it packs intense flavors but will not induce a food coma. All you need is a delicious French white Burgundy as your beverage of choice, and you have the perfect night in with friends.
