Shrimp and scallops are lightly sautéed with herbs, tomatoes, garlic, white wine, and olive oil, then simmered in a savory, creamy marinara sauce for a weeknight dinner that’ll make it feel like the weekend. This dish is best when served over pasta or polenta, and goes great with a glass of white wine. You won’t believe how quick and easy this fancy Shrimp and Scallops in Creamy Marinara Sauce is to make, and it’s done in only 20 minutes!
It’s time for another edition of My Dad Likes to Cook For My Blog! His recipes are always out-of-this-world good, and I’m very happy to bring you another one today.
Last week he made Shrimp and Scallops in Creamy Marinara Sauce for dinner, and it did not last for leftovers. This dish is seriously good. The creamy marinara with the garlic and cherry tomatoes just works perfectly with the fresh flavors of the shrimp and scallops. I highly recommend serving this over pasta (gluten free if needed!) or polenta. We used a lightly pan-fried polenta, and it was simply delicious.
The best part? This dish is so easy to make. The shrimp and scallops cook quickly and the whole dish is ready in only 20 minutes, so it’s perfect for a weeknight dinner. If you can saute, you can make this, and you’ll be glad you did!
