Japanese scallops with leeks and miso are a simple dinner, bursting with flavor and rich in nutrients. 10 ingredients and 30 minutes is all you need!
Say “I love you!” with scallops
Homemade scallops are a little luxury and perfect for a stay-at-home date night. They are also 100% sustainable, so you can feel really good about eating them.
These scallops are flavorful, bursting with the delicate taste of miso, the perfect consistency and full of nutrients. And those leek noodles? We are talking about actual leek noodles! 100% veggie noodles, no grains and no gluten. Just delicious leeks cut into noodles.
One of our favorite parts of Paris is the rue Saint Anne. Have you been? It is a gorgeous street in the second arrondisement full of Japanese restaurants and grocery stores. We go there to buy all of our favorite Japanese food products : miso cubes, soy sauce, mirin wine for cooking, matcha and more!
We can often be seen walking from our neighborhood in the 9th towards the rue Saint Anne with our little yorkies, Violette and Chou Chou. They have been there so much that they can lead the way!
We love easy seafood recipes. One of our favorite ways to take care of one another is to cook. A romantic night in feels perfect and complete for us with Japanese scallops, a gorgeous bottle of white wine and a romantic mini cheesecake for two. What is your favorite romantic dinner?
You will be wowed by how simple these scallops are to make, how juicy they are and how much you will love the Japanese miso flavor!
Just a note, in France scallops are often served with the coral (or roe) still attached. Often in the States, it is removed. I personally am not a big fan but Hugo loves it (and loves getting to eat 2 servings, since I always give him mine!), so it’s up to you to decide if you like it or not!
