Instructions

  1. Season shrimps with salt, pepper, and paprika. Set aside in a fridge for 15 mins
  2. Boil cranberry juice and season with salt, add pasta and cook to al dente per package's instruction
  3. Save 1 cup of cranberry juice from cooking. We will use 1/2 cup. The other half is in case we need to lighten up the sauce
  4. While pasta is cooking, heat up a medium sauce pan or a deep pan for the sauce
  5. When the pan is hot, add olive oil. Then add shallot and garlic. Saute them till they're translucent
  6. Add mushroom. Saute it till mushroom starts to cook through. They will absorb oil, so add 1 TBS of butter.
  7. Add white wine. Simmer it for 10 mins. Add cream and tomato paste. Use wooden spoon stir for the paste to dissolve.
  8. Add 1/2 cup cranberry juice. Add bay leaf, and all the seasonings. Let it simmer for 15 mins
  9. Add scallops in the sauce; stir
  10. In a meantime, pan-grill the shrimps. Heat up a cast iron pan. Add butter. When butter is melting and starts to bubble. Add shrimps
  11. Cook shrimps for about 2 mins on each side. The trick is to use a back of a wooden spoon or spatula to put some weight on the shrimps so that their edge get crispy and to create a smokey flavor. After cook all the shrimps, set aside by covering with foil
  12. Going back to the sauce, add sour cream, stir, then add cheese. Add salt and pepper if needed
  13. To Plate:
  14. Place pasta on a prepared dish, pour the cream sauce over, place shrimps on top, and sprinkle with minced parsley
  15. Sprinkle with more cheese if needed

Tips

Health Tips

  • You can easily replace regular noodles with whole wheat noodles to add a little extra fiber, protein, vitamins, and minerals to this dish. Just don't make the mistake of assuming that because the pasta is whole wheat, you can eat as much as you want. The calories and the effect on your blood sugar is not so drastically different!

  • Before you pass up garlic because you don't want the bad breath that comes with it, keep in mind that the compounds that cause garlic breath also offer a lot of health benefits. Garlic has anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, antibacterial, and antiviral properties. If you really want to get the most health benefits out of your garlic, choose Spanish garlic, which contains the most allicin (one of garlic's most beneficial compounds).

  • Since most of its calories come from fat, sour cream has a bad reputation for being an unhealthy food. However, fat is an important part of the diet and studies suggest people who eat full fat dairy are thinner than those who reach for reduced fat products. That said, fat has more calories per gram than carbohydrates or protein, so if you are counting calories to lose weight, you might want to try substituting greek yogurt for some of the sour cream in recipes that call for a lot of it.

  • Sea salt is not healthier than table salt, contrary to what you may have heard. Sea salt is usually 97.5% sodium chloride (same as regular old table salt) and the minerals accounting for the rest are too insignificant to make a difference?unless you plan on consuming sea salt by the pound, in which case the health benefits from the minerals will definitely be outweighed by the negative effects of all the sodium you are consuming!

Price Tips

  • Sea salt can add a unique texture or provide bursts of salty goodness, but ONLY when it isn't being dissolved. So if you have expensive sea salt, save it for sprinkling on salads or dark chocolate cookies, don't try to use it in your pasta sauce or soup. Once sea salt dissolves, the flavor is indistinguishable from table salt from the shaker (after all, they are chemically the same thing, sodium chloride).

  • Most dairy products stay good well past their sell-by date. Instead of throwing out perfectly safe food that is just a few days or maybe even a week or two old, make sure the product smells fine, has a normal texture, and doesn't taste funny. Sniff testing isn't exactly rocket science and it can keep you from wasting food (and money).

  • If you find meat (especially grassfed and/or organic meat!) on sale, stock up and freeze it. Ground meat will stay good 3-4 months, while steaks, chops, etc., will be fine for at least 4 months.

Cooking Tips

  • When buying wine for cooking, it is certainly not a bad idea to buy a wine you would enjoy drinking (some wine for the dish, some wine for the chef?) But if your favorite wines cost a small fortune, save them for drinking and purchase a cheaper?though still good quality!?wine for cooking. Just don't buy "cooking wine" with added salt, food coloring, etc.

  • If you're using olive oil to cook at high temperatures, make sure that the olive oil you're using has a high smoke point because heating an oil past its smoke point can ruin the flavor and even release harmful compounds into your dish. Many people recommend saving extra-virgin olive oil for cold dishes or for adding the finishing touch to a warm dish. You could also use canola oil, coconut oil, or another good high-temperature oil to be on the safe side.

  • You might have heard that you should never wash mushrooms. Before you spend your precious time wiping down mushroom after mushroom with a towel, you should probably know that this is mostly a myth. While mushrooms can absorb a little water if you soak them long enough, the amount absorbed from a quick wash is not going to have much of an impact on your dish.

  • The best method for cooking pasta is pretty controversial, but most sources seem to reach a consensus. Check out our lesson on how to cook pasta in the academy.

Green Tips

  • Good news for mushroom lovers: according to the Environmental Working Group (EWG), mushrooms are pretty "clean" when it comes to pesticide residue, so you do not have to splurge on extra-expensive organic mushrooms (unless you want to!)

  • Parmesan cheese is traditionally made using rennet, an animal-derived enzyme. For this reason, true parmesan cheese is not suitable for vegetarians. You might be able to find a vegetarian hard cheese to substitute.
