Dysfunction Chef Friday: Seriously Sweet Sea Scallops

Happy Friday, Tushkateers! I am on a train, on my way to Washington DC, and through the miracle of the modern world, my USB port has allowed me to connect to the world wide web and share this most delicious recipe with you.
Seriously, that’s just how delicious it is … I couldn’t wait to ‘land’ and plug into my son’s wireless. I had the yen, the urge, an itch, a craving to share, share, share now!
So here it is. A most seriously delicious and heart health recipe that will impress. Beautiful, delicious, heart healthy.
Ready. Set. Cook!
Ingredients:
1 1/4 pounds fresh sea scallops (16 more or less)
1 (14.5 ounce) can diced tomatoes
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1/2 cup dry red wine
4 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup organic vegetable broth
1/4 cup Kalamata olives, pitted and quartered
1 tablespoon thinly sliced fresh basil
Fettuccini (best bet is to go with whole grain or multigrain Fettuccini)
Instructions:
Cook pasta according to package.
Rinse scallops, pat dry with paper towels. Set aside!
Sprinkle with black pepper, 1/4 teaspoon – 1/2 teaspoon
Set aside 1/2 of the diced tomatoes.
In a blender, combine the remaining tomatoes and the liquid from the can.
Cover and blend till smooth. Set aside!
Preheat large skillet over medium-high flame until hot (maybe 2 or 3 minutes).
Add oil to hot skillet. Cook until golden brown, turning once, about 4 minutes.
Transfer scallops to a warm platter. Cover to keep warm.
And NOW … the sauce!
Add wine and garlic to skillet. Cook until wine mixture is reduced by one-third.
Add the reserved diced tomatoes, the pureed tomato mixture, and the broth.
Bring to boil. Reduce heat. Simmer uncovered for about 4 minutes
Remove from heat. Stir in olives!
Spoon sauce over pasta. Arrange scallops on top and then sprinkle with basil!
Yum! So delish!

    Eat right, keep moving.
    You just have read all that you need to know about how to prevent being overweight. That simple set of instructions should be easy to follow, but not for 35% of Americans who are unable to prevent being overweight.
    Of course, once we are overweight, we usually want to trim down for a whole lot of reasons, some related to health, others having to do with looks.
    In addition, it is never too late to lose weight. But the fact is, it is a whole lot easier to prevent putting on pounds than to try losing them later on. And if there is one thing we all know, it is that weight gain is likely to happen if we do not take forward-looking steps to stop it.
