You know when people tell you there’s good news and bad news and then make you pick which you want to hear first?
I always pick the bad first. Not quite sure if there’s some underlying meaning to that but in today’s circumstances here’s the bad news:
My beloved fish market seems to have jacked up the price of wild salmon like $5 a pound lately. If I did emoticons in blog posts, I’d insert one big unhappy face here. But I don’t because I’m not 12.
The good news:
They seem to have simultaneously made these gorgeous wild sea scallops affordable now instead of the $20+ a pound they were before.
So, I’ve been buying a lot of scallops lately for my weekly seafood fix.
When it comes to scallops, my go to is this quick and easy lemony tomato herb scallop dish. Literally, that’s pretty much all I do with them and while that dish is delicious (and so easy), I’m a bit sick of it.
