SEARED SCALLOPS WITH RISOTTO

SEARED SCALLOPS WITH RISOTTO
DINNER AT HOME

Wanted to give my girls a really good seafood dinner without spending a lot of money and did not want to serve them fish.  Went for some nice scallops that were actually on sale.  Served them Scallops with Risotto.  This was a delicious meal that was really pretty easy to prepare.  Tasted as good as a restaurant about about 1/4 the cost.  Started with a tablespoon of butter and tablespoon of olive oil.  Heated in pan and then added lots of chopped garlic.  Cooked the garlic and then added chopped mushrooms and asparagus.  Cooked until mushrooms were cooked and asparagus was cooked through but still a little crunchy.  Seasoned with salt and pepper and set aside.  Made a Risotto and then added the mushrooms, garlic and asparagus mixture along with some regular butter and a tablespoon of Truffle Butter.  Mixed well.  Cooked the scallops in olive oil for around two minutes on each side.  You want a nice sear on each side but do not want to overcook the scallops.
