Date Night Seared Scallops with Bacon Zucchini Noodles

The absolute most perfect date night meal – Seared Scallops with Bacon Zucchini Noodles. It’s a little bit of fancy with a huge amount of flavor and so super easy to cook up. You and your sweetheart will go ga-ga over this healthy, cozy meal!

Who doesn’t love being able to create a melt-in-your-mouth meal that requires only 5 main ingredients and about 20 total minutes from prep to plate? Those meals are just the best!!

Believe it or not, this was my first time cooking up sea scallops. I’ve enjoyed them out many times. In fact, they’re one of my favorite things to order when I’m dining in a fancier seafood restaurant. Even when purchasing frozen scallops, they are a little pricier than other seafood options. I also have heard that they can go from raw to overcooked in a matter of minutes. I was a little intimidated to say the least.

Wow… I was really missing out! I should have bit the bullet and cooked these up years ago.

This whole meal works so perfect as a date night dinner or when you’re cooking to impress. It has such a gorgeous presentation and not only is it quick and easy, so you don’t have to spend all evening in the kitchen, but it’s so irresistibly delicious.

And what is date night without Gloria Ferrer? Gloria Ferrer is my favorite and both the new Rosé and Blanc de Blanc pair fabulously with these seared scallops. It’s no surprise I love it so much – Gloria Ferrer wines have earned over 500 gold medals and 50 90+ scores in the last 5 years.

Gloria Ferrer was the first sparkling wine house in Sonoma Carneros, and it was also the first to bring back clones from France to plant their vineyard. Thirty years later, with 335 acres under vine, the estate vineyards at Gloria Ferrer is known as experts in the production of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, and produce estate grown still and sparkling wines that rival some of the world’s finest.

Seriously, can you think of anything better to serve with such a delectable meal?!

I cannot wait for you guys to grab up some sea scallops and get to cooking! You’re going to be head-over-heels for this meal. It’s:

And soooooo stunning on the plate and in your mouth. Ha!

This is the ultimate recipe to cook up when you’re aiming to impress! As an added plus, it accommodates many diets – it’s paleo, Whole30 compliant, gluten and dairy-free. So eat up! And when you give this a try, be sure to tag a photo with #kimscravings on Instagram, so we can all see your beautiful plate. Cheers!!
