Pesto Stuffed Scallops
It’s ridiculously simple to do, but you must use the large sea scallops. Just take a sharp knife and make a horizontal slit in the middle being very careful not to cut all the way through, you want your scallop butterflied, put a small teaspoon of pesto inside. Salt and pepper your scallops then place them into a saute pan that’s been heated on medium heat with a little olive oil. Cook 2 to 3 minutes on each side. That’s it! Place in a pool of warm roasted red pepper sauce, but you could also use a light marinara sauce just as well. The flavor combination is dynamic!
