Scallops Aglio e Olio

I may be a noob cook, but I’m proud to say that I’ve learnt to whip up a mean dish of scallops Aglio Olio. Aglio e Olio which means garlic and oil is a traditional Italian pasta and one of the first few dishes I learnt to make when I started cooking.

Nowadays, I’m quite reluctant to order this dish outside, because it’s usually quite expensive on the menu, yet so cheap & easy to make at home – I’d rather spend the money on finer ingredients or buy white wine to complete the meal.

  1. Hi.. thanks for the receipe!
    I tried it out today and the result is delicious!
    So happy!

  2. Hi Wiffy, I Thot I was the only one eating aglio olio pasta with chili Padi! I have got 3 questions :-
    A) once pasta is cooked, do u run it under the tap to cool it n prevent sticking? If u don’t, how do u prevent the pasta fm sticking together?
    B) what is that instrument in the picture with the minced garlic? Do u use it to mince garlic instead of chopping with knife? Is there any instrument that can peel a garlic? My nails would peel into layers after I use them to peel off garlic skin.
    C) unrelated question but can u recommend a good blender or food processor? To blend garlic, onions, chilling…or mushroom to make soup! Thanks!

    • Hi! A) if you cook the pasta just before mixing them together, then they won’t stick coz they are still moist & hot. if not, you can either run the cooked pasta in water just before using, some people also coat the cooked noodles in olive oil.
      B) that’s a garlic press! I’ll be featuring the tool on NC Reviews one of these days … yes I use that to mince garlic. I know a way to peel garlic easily – first cut the top and bottom ends with a knife, then gently crush the garlic with the side of the knife (some people smack it), the skin will come loose easily this way. this is also a good way for recipes that call for whole garlic cloves in stews and braises, because the garlic scent is released this way.
      C) no special brand to mention, I have a Phillips and a u-like blender, they are quite normal to me.

  5. Hi Wiffy,

    I tried yr recipe. My spaghetti tastes great but scallop turns out to be overlooked and chewy. Is there any way to know that the scallop is cooked & ready to dish out? Tks.

  6. Hi! What scallop do u recommend? I try to use frozen ones and I just not sure how to clean them up before cooking.
