On the way home from work I made a detour down through Cow Bay stopping at Cowichan Bay Seafood to pick up something for dinner.
Since we had just had halibut a few days ago I went with fresh scallops.
Scallops are not my favourite but Moe loves them.
Dinner was one of those very easy, quick to put together meals.
It took longer for the water to come to a boil than it did to cook dinner.
When the pasta was almost done, the scallops were seared in a very hot cast iron skillet
in a little butter and olive oil.
The pasta was drained, put back into the pot with a couple of tablespoons of butter,
a minced garlic clove, the juice of a whole lemon, chopped chives
a thinly sliced hot red chili pepper.
Seasoned with salt and pepper, plated and topped with the scallops.
