You're welcome. Scallop go with everything

I ended up turning my scallops into scallops alfredo to go along with my steak.

I made langostino scampi over spaghetti tonight.

Costco had some at a decent price, so we picked up some. Half of them are in the freezer for later.

I had never heard of gubana so I took a look @ what it was and it looks yummmmy! Did you make yours? Does this recipe look authentic-ish if I were to try one someday?

I tried the Cooks Illustrated/Test Kitchen recipe for Nut crusted Chicken. It was wonderful. Essentially you use Almonds (ground) with Panko, lemon zest, Cayene, Thyme, all sauted with some butter. then flour and egg wash the chicken, roll in the nut stuff and bake at 350 F for about 25-30 minutes. It was most and a great flavor.

I was thinking of something similar for some salmon in a couple of weeks when we have friends over. The recipe I saw was pretty much the same but used pistachios. Glad to hear it was a winner

I used 1 cup of almonds and 1 cup of panko, and like 1/8 tsp of cayene, 2 tsp of lemon zest. The lemon zest in contrast to the cayene was what really made the flavor pop. Also, the egg wash was 2 eggs and 2 tsp dijon mustard. I have never used mustard before but it was really good. This would really be good on any fish. You may want to increase the lemon zest the stronger the fish.

Yes, Zereh, I made ours. The recipe in the link you noted is quite different from mine, but I would imagine there are a number of different and acceptable ones around.

The filling in mine has ground almonds, pine nuts, walnuts, raisins, cocoa powder, cinnamon, ground cloves, ground fresh nutmeg, grated orange zest, and Grappa or Kirsch.

It's delicious and quite a workout to make the dough, but well worth it.
