Weekly Ad Recipe - Lemon Pesto Shrimp www.cobornsblog.com

If you are a pesto lover like I am you are going to go crazy for this. The flavor of the lemon and pesto just burst in your mouth when you take that first bite. I loved this recipe. The best part is that it’s done in less than 30 minutes. You can also try adding scallops to this recipe or serving it over Angel Hair Pasta. Yummy! Enjoy….I did!

Weekly Ad Recipe – Scallops with Garlic Sauce

www.cobornsblog.com - Scallops with Garlic Sauce Recipe

This recipe was extremely easy to make and I absolutely loved them. Just a couple of tips when making the scallops. Make sure the scallops are very dry so pat them with paper towels to help remove moisture. Also what I found out, that was very helpful was to have all ingredients next to the stove before cooking, because the scallops and sauce cook quickly. Enjoy…I did!
