TODAY IS NATIONAL BAKED SCALLOPS DAY!
We’ve had a few seafood holidays so far. Being in the middle of a landlocked state, despite all of our lakes, the seafood challenges are often the more tough to plan. We thought about the possibility of making our own baked scallops, but wanted to consult the internet first. Googling “baked scallops twin cities” brought us to the menu of the now defunct, but formerly super-good, Kikugawa in St. Anthony Village. And then it dawned on SP that the former owners of Kikugawa are the current owners of Suishin, where the menu is mostly the same! Plus, SP‘s friend Alex works there, so that’s a plus.
Our dish for the night was the Dynamite. No, not a dynamite roll. This thing is described on the menu as, “Baked scallops with mushrooms and special sauce.” And let us tell you, it is a special sauce. It’s awesome.
It’s really good. You ought to try it sometime soon!
WEIGH IN DAY RESULTS!
