Corn & Scallop Sauté
This is a favorite late summer, one-pot meal. It can be a delicious vegetarian meal or even better with scallops and bacon. I couldn't resist the scallops at the Dewey Square Farmers' Market sold by Red's Best. These scallops are not hand harvested but dredged which is not the best technique for the marine environment. Look for diver caught or farmed scallops for the best choice.
- Four ears of corn, kernels cut from the cob.
- One small onion, diced.
- Bacon, optional cut into lardons.
- Cherry tomatoes
- herbs - basil, parsley, thyme
- Scallops (could also substitute chicken or cooked wheatberries)
- Sauté bacon lardons until golden, almost done. Remove to a paper towel to drain.
