This is really quite simple, but it requires sourcing quality scallops. I usually grab a bag of frozen sea scallops when I see them on sale. We always have bacon in our fridge so are ready to throw a fancy appetizer together at any time. We got fancy with a maple glaze on this one because it was for a NYE dinner.
The Zest Coast Carolina Rub with Savory Blast Seasoning Blend turns out to have the perfect mix of savory and spice to flavor a big of gumbo. And I discovered a much easier way of making the roux for gumbo.
Want a super easy appetizer? This is a go to appetizer or game time party food. I keep shrimp in the freezer in case we need something quick. This one is super simple and a crowd pleaser. You can make a small batch or go big if needed. Same amount of work either way.
Excited to use my recently built Ugly Drum Smoker so decided to do cedar plank salmon. The First Mate keeps experimenting with rice in the Instant Pot so here we go.
