Best seafood recipe.
Cook the spaghetti according to the packet instructions.
In a frying pan, heat up one tablespoon of olive oil.
Rinse the scallops under cold water, and pat them dry with kitchen towel.
Arrange the scallops in the frying pan, and leave to fry undisturbed on each side for 3-4 minutes, or until lightly brown on the outside.
Remove from the pan and set aside.
Wipe the pan clean if there are brown bits left, then add the remaining olive oil and butter.
Throw in the minced garlic and half of the chopped parsley, plus the chopped wild garlic if you have, and leave to cook for 30 seconds, so that the garlic can release its flavour.
Add the cream and scallops, and leave to cook for 3-4 minutes until the cream thickens slightly. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
Once the spaghetti are cooked, drain, and serve with the creamy scallop sauce and extra chopped parsley.
