Scallop Aglio Olio

Here's a simple recipe for a really fuss-free meal! (: Linguine with awesome bacon and scallops. SLURPS! Love the heat to this dish too!

I'd rate this recipe a 3 out of 5 in terms of difficulty and it'd take about 30 minutes to cook. 

Scallop Aglio Olio Recipe

This recipe yields enough to feed 4 people

450g linguine
55ml olive oil
8 clove garlic
3 chilli padi
200g of back bacon
8 scallops
1 tbsp olive oil

8 mini portobello mushrooms
1 tbsp olive oil
150g mozzarella cheese
black pepper


Preheat oven to 250 degree Celsius. Do not wash the mushroom, use a moist cloth to wipe it will do. Remove stalk and place in a baking tray/pan. Drizzle with the 1 tbsp of olive oil and bake for 12 minutes.

Slice the back bacon into bite sized pieces.

To a pan on medium-high heat, pan fry for 5 - 8 minutes or till cooked.

Discard of the oil and set aside.

Remove mushrooms from oven and top with cheese. 

Return to oven and bake for 5 - 7 more minutes or till cheese is all melted.

To a large pot, add a generous amount of salt and boil the pasta according to package instructions. 

Slice 3 chilli padi and remove most of the seeds. This makes the dish very mild. If you want more heat, add more chilli.

Slice the garlic into thin slices.

To a large skillet, add in the olive oil. At the same time, add in the garlic. Cook on high heat.

Allow garlic to cook for 5 minutes or till lightly brown. 

Add in sliced chilli and turn off the heat. Set aside.

Drain the linguine and add in the oil mixture and back bacon. Mix well. 

I used frozen scallops so I defrosted them according to the package instructions. Do pat dry the scallops before seasoning with some salt and black pepper.

To a hot skillet, add in 1 tbsp of olive oil and allow pan to be really hot before cooking the scallops. Pan fry the scallops on each side for 2-3 minutes or till scallop is cooked. 

Serve hot! (:
