When we all decided to head to Vegas, Lesli and Allie requested to eat at Bobby Flay’s restaurant, Mesa Grill. Well, their wish came true last Sunday, and I must say it was a treat for our taste buds. If you don’t know me by now I’m addicted to seafood, and my favorites are scallops and shrimp (I’m worried one day I might turn into a crustacean). So when I was looking at the menu my eyes were drawn to ANCHO CRUSTED SEA SCALLOPS, with Crawfish-Green Onion Sauce. I was so glad I chose this dish because it was pure luxury to my mouth. The scallops were dusted with ancho pepper which means Poblano pepper in Spanish; it gave off a mild peppery flavor. The scallops were cooked perfectly, seared with a rare center. They were sweet and tender and melted in my mouth. The crawfish-green onion sauce was the icing on the cake, they had mixed crawfish meat in with the sauce, so every nibble had a crawfish tail on top. I must say it was great and different and if I’m ever at Mesa again I will be sure to order the same thing.
P.S. I’m sure this was only 4 points. ha! OH and Bobby, if your reading this please contact me, I have something very important to ask you.
