Imagine being a server in Hell’s Kitchen and Gordon finds out that it’s your dream to become a chef but you’ve never had formal training because you can’t afford it, so he gives you private lessons.

——— Request for anon ———

“We set the egg beautifully on top of the scallop, giving a more sophisticated presentation,” Gordon finishes his dish, slipping the egg into place using a single finger. Spinning the plate towards you, he glances up, “See?”

“It’s beautiful,” you agree, mouth already watering at simply the vision of the dish. You still couldn’t believe you were standing in Gordon Ramsay’s own kitchen, getting a private lesson in cooking from him. You’d watched for so long as a server for Hell’s Kitchen, holding onto your dream of becoming a chef, but the reality was that formal training was far too pricey for you at the moment. You could never express how grateful you were that, upon finding out about your situation, Gordon had decided to help you out.

Gordon straightens up, throwing his towel over his shoulder and crossing his arms, “Alright, now, it’s your turn. Just as I showed you.”

Brown Butter Seared Scallops w/ Broiled Elote (magical corn) and Asparagus 

EVERYONE should be able to make at lease one or two fast, impressive meals. You just never know!! What if that studly stud// foxy fox from work or class or wherever calls you because he/she just “happens” to be in the neighborhood (lol yea right)? Or maybe you’re in a dream relationship and wanna REALLLLY impress your new boo by making them dinner but want to avoid the hamburger helper (never had it, looks good tho). Well this is that perfect dish. Anyone can do this. Ok sure, most people don’t just ~happen~ to have 6-8 scallops laying around in their fridge, fine but they are pretty accessible and “fancy” and EASIER and FASTER TO MAKE THAN KRAFT MAC AND CHEESE! Plus, above all, they are high in protein, low in fat and calories yet filling and satisfying as fuuuuu. If you want to keep it 100% healthy use low-fat (greek) yogurt with corn and skip brown butter sauce for scallops.

PS - I am aware that these have already been posted to my Instagram account (@ceciliasingley) but hold tight, I’m playing ketchup (catch up…food jokes lololol)

Serves 2

Ingredients - 
6-8 scallops rinsed and patted dry (four large scallops is enough for one person) — large shrimp work well too!

1 table spoon of vegetable oil, or cooking oil

2 table spoons of unsalted butter

3-4 ears of corn

2 tbl spoons Crema, or sour cream, or plain greek yogurt 

2 tbl sp Cojita cheese or shaved parmesan (us classy folk call it “shake cheese”, cute right?)

1 teaspoon chili flakes 

1 teaspoon cumin or taco seasoning

Asparagus drizzled in olive oil.

Optional: thinly sliced shallots and slightly mashed tomato pieces for brown butter, cilantro for garnish

Turn your broiler on high. Don’t wait for the beep, go ahead at put your shucked corn cobs on the top rack. Same for your asparagus on a baking sheet, which should be drizzled in olive oil, lightly sprinkled w/ some cumin if you’re into cumin. Leave in there for about 10 minutes — or until the corn kernels are yellow and juicy and ready to pop, asparagus slightly charred. 

While the veggies cook, heat a large skilled with your cooking oil. Place scallops onto pan once it is really hot. Don’t touch them for about 2-3 minutes. Flip them, there should be a nice brown crust formed on the newly exposed side. Now turn the heat down to medium-low and toss in your butter (this is where shallot + tomato come in if you went that way) and let the scallops continue cooking in the butter which should be getting foamy and a bit brown and nutty smelling. Remove pan from heat after about 2 minutes. 

Remove your veggies, plate your asparagus. For presentational purposes I shaved the corn off of the cob. Either way, mix in crema, cheese, and chili. Lime juice ain’t bad either. Plate your corn, and then place your scallops on top as seen, spooning brown butter on tops of scallops. 

Prepare to be proposed to and enjoy! 

Just the way You are.

A/N: It took me so long to get around to writing this, I’m so sorry. And once I did, it took me a day to finish it. I hope you enjoy this, @heartattackfandom, it was a cute and lovely idea and I really enjoyed writing this <3

Last ever ootd in this location because I’m moving house next week. I’m going to have my own little rooftop apartment now which is super exciting and a bit scary too because moving is always scary. I can’t wait for my forever home but I guess this is the penultimate step towards it because my final move next year will be into my fiance’s arms and to me, he’s home.

Yes, I’m getting married and while part of me kind of wanted to make that announcement with the now traditional ‘ringfie’ (what an ugly word) we’re going to have to wait a couple of months for that. After all, our relationship is conducted under the watchful eye of the UKBA, and they do not approve of our sort of love, not in the least. And THAT was the grumpiest sounding engagement-announcement in living memory *mic drop*
