Dinner for Two: Grilled Miso Scallops with Udon and Japanese Furikake Seasoning

(Apologies if you are receiving this a second time… scheduling snafu). 🙂

If you are cooking dinner for that special someone this weekend, here is a beautiful, simple and sophisticated dish that won’t keep you frantic in the kitchen.

These scallops are marinated in a sweet miso mixture that enhances the natural sweetness of the scallops as well as adding that elusive umami component. You know I love marinades that do double-duty. The scallops only marinade for 15 minutes and the marinade goes into a skillet with some shiitake mushrooms to glaze the udon noodles. I found these sexy black rice udon noodles to contrast the scallops at Whole Foods, but you could certainly use regular udon… Forbidden rice (black rice) would also be a great option as would white Jasime rice.

I know you thinking “but what the H is furikake?”. Furikake is a Japanese seasoning blend mad from toasted nori (that stuff they wrap sushi in), sesame seeds, bonito flakes (dried fish), and salt. It is incredibly easy to make and once you have tried it, you’l be sprinkling it on everything… amazing on popcorn, trust me. If any of those components weird you out too much, just leave it out, however, I encourage you to try it.
