Recipe: Scallop and Zucchini Spaghettini
This recipe serves 4.
Step 1. In a large pot of boiling water, add salt and spaghettini and cook until al dente. Reserve about 1½ cups of pasta water before draining.
Step 2. In a heavy based pot, sauté the chilli and garlic in olive oil until aromatic. Add zucchini and cook for a further 10 minutes.
Step 3. Add a cup of the reserved pasta water.
Step 4. Sear the scallops in a hot fry pan.
Step 5. Add scallops and parsley to the pot and cook for a few minutes.
Step 6. Add ½ cup of pasta water and the pasta to the mix. Stir vigorously to emulsify the oil, water and pasta. It should result in a velvety sauce. To finish, season with salt and black pepper to taste.
