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.

    I am the same- it’s too expensive to order out when it is an easy dish to make at home. It is the simplest that is the most delish. Love how u added chili padi for the heat and the herbs at the end!

    When I saw this recipe I was drooling. The scallops and pasta looked like a perfect match. Unfortunately, my son is allergic to seafood … *cry*cry*cry*.

    So, yesterday, after such a *long* wait, I decided to make with Chicken instead. I must say “WOW” … I made 2 portions of this … my son told me not to eat mine because he *LOVES* it!

    Yes … he ate 1.5 portion … for a 6 yr old … it has to be goooooooooooooood!!!

    Thanks for sharing the recipe!

      Hi Ploh, this is a garlic press. Mine was shipped from Amazon, but in Singapore, you can find it at certain supermarket (kitchen tools section) and Isetan (I saw the KAI brand) etc.
