Spring! I mean Summer! I mean it's SPRING!! Hello hello to all you sexy seafood noms out there!

This was something I made with my new spiralizer that was surprisingly a huge hit with Todd! He isn't the biggest fan of scallops so I was happy he ate it [:

I seriously think zucchini noodles are so fun to eat. You basically take a zuke & spin it around to make these pasta-like noodles that taste NOTHING like zucchini! Witchcraft? Sorcery? I don't know I don't care just let's keep doing it.

If you do not have a spiralizer do not fret my lovelies. Take a peeler & peel long strips from your zuke. Do both sides & then the other two shorter sides. Line them up & cut into strips, BOOOOOOOM..  you just made zucchini noodles! Exciting I freaking know!

The recipe is so simple (like all my recipes really) so you have no reason to not make it. So go & make this! 

2 Zucchinis (spiralized)
1 packet of Cherry tomatoes cut in halves
1 Red onion (chopped)
Juice of 1 juicy ass lemon 
1 cup of Sauvignon Blanc 
1/2 lb of Fresh Scallops
1/2 cup chopped Basil
1 tbsp minced Garlic
2 tbsp Unsalted Butter

1. Rinse & dry your scallops. Season with salt & pepper!

2. Heat up a skillet on medium high heat & melt 1 tbsp of yo butttahhhhh yeaaah ;) ;)
3. Put those bivalve mollusks in there & sear on each side for about 2 minutes. Take them off once cooked. 
4. Melt the second half of your butter & add to it garlic, red onions, cherry tomatoes & basil. Simmer! Add your wine after a minute or two.
5. Drink a little white wine now. Do it. Mmmmm.... wine ^______^

6. Once all that begins to get nice & married up throw your scallops back into the pan & get all the flavors to mingle some more.

7. Last but not least turn OFF your heat & add your zucchini noodles! The zukes will give off some moisture but this makes for a yummier dish.

Ta-da!! A super easy summer dinner recipe :]  I know.. I need to update more regularly! It's so hard to do with the cutest KITTEN IN THE WORLD AROUND ALL THE TIME GUYS.
