Ingredients

280 g
240 g
scallops
200 g
cherry tomatoes in different colour varieties
40 g
extra virgin olive oil
as desired
salt
as desired
basil

Preparation

Wash the scallops thoroughly under running water, then soak for around 2 hours in salted water to remove any sand. Rinse in cold water. Discard any shells which have not opened. Remove the flesh with a knife, reserving a few scallops with their shells for decoration.

 

Saute the scallops in a frying pan with oil and garlic for a few minutes.

 

In the meantime, cook the pasta until “al dente”, drain and add to the pan with the scallops. Cook for a minute more, adding the halved and seeded cherry tomatoes.

 

Decorate each serving with basil leaves and a few whole scallops with their shells.
