Scallops with asparagus

July 29, 2008 at 10:08 pm 2 comments

Happy days again…well, it hasn’t exactly been sad.  It’s just that the scallops my family loves are quite available whenever we want it.  Gosh, the market my mil buys them from  just needs 1-2 weeks notice. I thought I could only get them around CNY only.  Our favorite ways to cook scallops are  with pasta and asparagus.  In the middle of the night just last week, my Dh just tried them panfired with olive oil, salt and pepper.  He said they were perfect. He can actually make himself something to eat when he’s really hungry.  NO, I should give him more credit.  He does make dinner for Valentines. LOL  The recipe from the first photo is from Epicurious and I couldn’t  find it again.  The sauce has wine vinegar, shallots, and butter, plus s&p.  My dh cooked these. 

From the second recipe, I just recently made.  The recipe is from The Fresh Market

    Those look good! Did you use the Mascarpone cheese or did you skip it?

    I read that mascarpone is double-cream or triple cream cheese. Instead of running to the store to buy it(it’s so expensive here), I used regular cream cheese instead. I softened it and stirred it up so it would be light textured and easily mixed inwith the rest of the sauce.
