Peeping into my wine rack.
This is another that didn’t last long in the rack.
Convento da Serra – White 2009
Another wine from the Alentejo region in southern Portugal.
Grape types: Fernão Pires, Rabo de Ovelha and Roupeiro
My view: Damned fine wine, looking for more.
On-line wine sellers note: Aroma muito fresco e limonado, denotando a juventude do vinho. (Very fresh aroma, lemon, denoting a young wine).
Price: R$27 ($12)
I love scallops.
I was reading earlier about the Queen scallops from the Isle on Man, Manx scallops; and I found this, literally my mouth began to water.
So simple. So yummy.
There are a zillion recipes out there for pan-fried scallops. This is one of mine.
The fresher my ingredients are, the less I usually fuss with my food. This recipe combines a few simple ingredients that complement each other—and still let the individual flavors shine through.
For this recipe, fresh sea scallops are seared in a thyme-infused butter, then drenched in white wine. They simmer for just a few minutes, and the sauce cooks down into a brine-y, buttery, herb-laced reduction.
It’s fresh, fast, easy, and oh-so-delicious.
