Sauteed Scallops and Summer Vegetables

Dinner:  June 26, 2007

A quick dinner on a steamy night, prepared by my darling husband (who, by the way, shows up in the July/August issue of Imbibe – congratulations, love!). The green beans in the veg mix are the first batch from our little patch of Brooklyn garden, and man, were they good. There’s nothing like growing your own.

  1. I am so glad it’s almost lunchtime now. This looks and sounds delicious. And congrats to your husband! You two have the food and beverage departments totally covered, don’t you? I can only imagine [well, with the help of your excellent blogs] how wonderful dinnertime is for you on a daily basis.

  2. I’m no photographer (though I am the daughter of one) but I absolutely LOVE how the green bean in this photograph creates a perfect and natural enclosure around the rest of the dish. It looks like a delicious work of art!

    And my stomach often agrees with my eyes :)

    Terry, thanks so much! Mike and I are a pretty good match, I have to say. :) I also keep forgetting to tell you that he used your fennel and paprika rub on some pork recently, and it was FANTASTIC. Seriously yummy stuff.

    Hillary, thank you! I actually didn’t even notice how that green bean landed in the bowl, but yeah, you’re right – kind of fun!

  4. This looks tasty…and I had no idea that Mike was a mixologist…

    So when is the big blog party in Brooklyn? I’ll bring the vino for sure ;)

    Lenn – we’re tentatively planning our second annual cocktail extravaganza for sometime in September. I’ll keep you posted! ;)

  6. Jennifer, I’m sort of a novice to cooking with fresh ingredients and going to the Farmer’s Markets here in DC has become my new hobby! Your web site has been such a great inspiration!

    I’ve been taking advantage of the abundance of green beans this summer and I was wondering if you had any suggestions for blanching them and keeping that bright green color. Thanks!
