Couscous, Herbs, Tomatoes Salad with Scallops
Couscous, herbs, tomato salad with scallops. Sometimes you come across a recipe that just has your name written all over and you must try. As some of you may remember last summer I spend a week in Paris and there I was introduced to the wonderful work and world of Yotam Ottolenghi. My life has not been the same since. Mediterranean, simple, and complex cooking will make you want to try a new recipe every day. Each recipe is so easy to execute but it introduces you, in this case, me, to new flavors. Flavors that are not in my French or Italian cooking. I look forward to seeing the results of the blends that he uses with his recipes.
The cinnamon, cardamom, and coriander cooked with the couscous and onions brings out this bit of a spicy hide and seek with your palate. There to be noticed, allowing you to taste every bite of your food by having each flavor enhance each other. And then the fresh mint and cilantro, each balancing each other and bringing a fresh cooling feeling to the dish. The lemon zest and juice bring out each flavor.
