Summer dining at home

It seems nothing beats a home cooked meal of fresh seafood at this time of year and it is hard to decide between salmon, swordfish scallops or shrimp. Last nights dinner was Seared Scallops on a bed of creamed corn with a salad of lightly pickled onion, tomato (We used cherry tomatoes, halved) with fresh basil and parsley from the garden.

For all our local foodie friends I would like to give shout out to Ali & Les of Jumbo Seafood at Blair Road. We used their scallops for this dish and they were great. Ali sends out a weekly list of what they have to offer so visit their facebook page and have your email added to their distribution.

If you would like to have a crack at this really easy dish here is the recipe sized for two people. Enjoy it sitting on the deck or porch with a glass of pinot grigio.
