Scallop Lunch – Padma Style

My mom and I headed to Columbus for a long weekend to visit the only person that matters in my family anymore, my baby nephew. For lunch, my sister-in-law decided to make us a nice meal with scallops! Using a recipe from Padma Lakshmi’s Tangy Tart Hot and Sweet, we were treated to some surprisingly tasty scallops!
Here are some of the ingredients… chopped peanuts, cucumber relish, and breadcrumbs with mango powder for dusting on the scallops.
As it turned out, she had no idea how to cook scallops. I didn’t really know how either, but I’d tried once before, and failed spectacularly. But considering I had some “experience”, I ended up actually cooking them. And shockingly, they turned out well! I seared them on both sides and they turned out cooked just right. I don’t know how that happened. Let’s chalk it up to luck!
We also had some colorful salads and some wheat naan bread. I know, seriously, I never make myself meals this extensive. I’m lucky if I actually eat my food out of a bowl, instead of the pot.
We also had some leftover red velvet chocolate cake in the shape of a heart. Awww…
