Vongolle a la Nazca with tiger prawns and scallops

I cooked the vongolle in white wine, finely chopped onion, garlic and olive oil for a few minutes. They all opened up, it was going to be my day! ;-)

I emptied the vongolle from the saucepan but left the juices behind and reduced them.

Meanwhile, I pan fried the tiger prawns and scallops in butter and olive oil.

To the wine reduction I added fresh oregano, fresh parsley, lime juice and a double cream. And then added the shelled vongolle to warm through.

I arranged the seafood around the bowl and served the vongolle sauce on a mound of basmati.

No pics I'm afraid. You'll just have to imagine the large smile on my face too :-D

Sounds yum. I see you've move to scallops and prawns diet now. Vongolle on rice...

You have to stop with this food and no photos ... it's completely unfair.

And by the way, I didn't receive my invitation for this dinner?

(Cream Puff is miffed!)

nothing wrong with seefood or seafood diets! :-D

Sorry about the no pics, but a) I'm lazy, b) my camera was packed already, and c) I'm lazy ;-)

Perhaps your infamous postman nicked it?

Hi Naz, you've been quiet for a while, whazzup?

Too busy to post, stuffing myself with paella in Valencia (where my parents live).

Back soon though, then I'll post some tapas recipes ;-)

mae said...

Valencia? habla Espanol? 'only kidding!'

Promises, promises... :)

Enjoy! and by any chance, photos?

I do as it happens speak spanish, my parents have lived in spanish speaking countries for 14 years now; me only 4.

Pics always depend on how hungry I am, how delish the food is and how far away the camera is ;-)
