Do you think there's a relationship between the name of this recipe and the fact that it tastes so heavenly?

What You'll Need

  • 8 ounces uncooked angel hair pasta
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter or margarine
  • 1 medium-sized red bell pepper, seeded and cut into ¼-inch strips
  • 1 medium-sized green bell pepper, seeded and cut into ¼-inch strips
  • 1 medium-sized onion, chopped (about 1 cup)
  • 1 can (2 ounces) anchovy fillets, chopped
  • 3 teaspoons minced garlic (6 to 8 cloves)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 8 ounces bay scallops
  • 12 ounces medium-sized cooked, peeled, and deveined shrimp

What to Do

  1. Cook the pasta according to the package directions; drain and keep warm in a large serving bowl.

  2. Meanwhile, in a medium-sized skillet, melt the butter over medium-high heat; add the bell peppers and onion and sauté for 5 to 6 minutes, or until the edges of the peppers begin to brown.

  3. Stir in the anchovies, garlic, salt, and black pepper and sauté for 3 to 4 more minutes. Add the scallops and shrimp and sauté for 3 to 5 minutes, until the scallops are cooked and the shrimp is heated through. Pour over the drained pasta and toss.


I like a big anchovy taste. If you do, too, add an additional can of anchovies to the recipe.

Weeknight Shrimp Fried Rice

Just because we have our weeknight routines, well, that doesn't mean they have to be boring. Sure, there are a lot of delicious shrimp fried rice recipes out there, but the secret that makes ours stand apart is chilling the rice before we cook it. It makes the fried rice lighter, and it won't get mushy later on. .
