The fresh salty air, crashing waves and sand under my feet… ahhh the coast!
I got to have a dose of ‘Vitamin Sea’ this past week, visiting the quaint seaside town of Carolina Beach with my dear friend Stephanie.
The part I like even more than being on the beach, is scouting around the local markets, and boy, did she know just the places! We visited the local farmers market and a seafood market which seems to be a bit of an inside secret, with the freshest shrimp and scallops.
With inspiration from large sprigs of rosemary I brought from my garden, and a popcorn infused vodka Stephanie made, I created his gorgeous dish, Rosemary Skewered Scallops with Popcorn Beurre Blanc over Cauliflower Mash with Roasted Asparagus.
It’s a very special dish, and really quite do-able! A Beurre Blanc sauce is a classic master sauce, and only sounds difficult. Come on, give it a shot… you will love it!
