Scallops have the sweetest taste of any seafood, a most companionable taste that makes possible a wide, and sometimes surprising, variety of flavor harmonies. The recipe below is one of the best examples I have ever found of that delicious versatility
We are accustomed to enjoy, in the cooking of Apulia, by whose flavors this recipe is inspired, the rustic, teasing bitterness of cime di rapa, the intensity of anchovies, the provocative call of chili pepper, but they are never more appealing than when they are presided over by the endearingly gentle taste of scallops.
