Blackened Scallops with Pasta

This was our Valentine dinner last night. I made this based on this recipe but instead of the combination of spices that make up the blackening seasoning it called for, I used Old Bay Blackened Seasoning. Much easier!
I sauteed half of a shallot and 8 ounces sliced mushrooms in a mixture of butter and olive oil. I added two Roma tomatoes, chopped and a little white wine. Then, the scallops were rolled in the blackening spices and sauteed in butter 3 to 4 minutes per side in another pan.

I served this over pasta and grated some parmesan cheese over it. My Valentine said it was delicious and I agreed!


  1. These look so good, I love scallops - hope you had a great Valentine's day!

  2. What a lovely Valentine's meal. Hope you two had a great night.

    And you definitely can't go wrong using Old Bay on seafood of any kind.

  3. What a lovely Valentine's meal, looks delicious!

  4. I love that Old Bay stuff. Great recipe. :)

  5. Karen- I am wondering do you know if you can blacken Mahi-Mahi the same way? Thanks. This looks great.

  6. Mmmm...I will be shopping for some meds for a very sick Matt later today. While I am at the store it couldn't hurt to add a scallop or two to the cart :) This looks like a very yummy, yet simple and quick meal!

  7. Oooh, this makes me hungry Karen... it's almost lunchtime here, and that would taste soo good on this chilly day.

    Very nice!

  8. That looks good. I like the sound f using scallops with pasta.
