Surf and Turf

Over the weekend our landlord's son was in town with some mates fishing. The last time they were in we ended up with a few fillet's of fresh fish. It was pretty windy over the weekend and they ended up diving instead of rolling around on the boat getting sick, so there were no fillets waiting for us this time. However, they did end up grabbing loads of scallops! For those of you who don't know, scallops are one of my absolute favorite foods! We had already planned on having steak for dinner so we had surf and turf with the freshest scallops you can imagine, and local to boot! YUM. Even John ate one and said "mmm, these are nice"... I sauteed them in butter and then added a splash of savignon blanc to make a little sauce- amazing.

This is what scallops look like, you get rid of the orange bit before you cook them. Scallops for sale in the grocery store are often times not really scallops, they're hole punched sting ray, shark etc. Sneaky, huh?
