A very busy day at work today, but quite satisfying as I got much done. Food Friday is fishy as it was this for dinner tonight:
SCALLOPS À LA GRECQUE
• 12 scallops in their shells • 3 tablespoons of olive oil • 1 lemon • 1 tablespoon flour • 1 cup of white wine • 1 cup of water • 1/2 tablespoon chopped rosemary • Salt, pepper • 1 rhizome of ginger, grated.
Wash and clean the scallops, removing all the grit from the gut. Drain them and season with salt and pepper. Heat the oil until very hot, scald the ginger and immediately the oil heats again put in the scallops, ensuring they are seared all around. Stir in the flour and once it browns slightly, pour in the wine and water, stirring all the while. Add the rosemary and keep heating until the sauce thickens. Serve each scallop in each pre-heated shell (have them in the oven while cooking the scallops).
Serve with dry white wine, a fresh green salad and crusty bread.
I have been blogging daily on this platform for several years now. It is surprising that I have persisted as the world is changing and "microblogging" is now the norm. I blog to amuse myself, make comment on current affairs, externalise some of my creativity, keep notes on things that interest me, learn something new and to surprise myself with things that I discover about this wonderful, and sometimes crazy, world we live in.
I sometimes get the impression that I am on a soapbox delivering a monologue, so your comments are welcome.
