You probably can’t relate, but as a famous person I like to surround myself with other famous people. Collectively I call this group my posse. Or sometimes my crew, but usually my posse. That’s why I had my sandwich next to this guy, Carl Carreiro. And are you ready for this? You might want to be sitting down. I can wait. Okay, ready. HIS FATHER WAS THE FIRST PORTUGUESE DJ IN AMERICA! Hearing this hit me like a dead cat. I always figured the first Portuguese DJ in America was someone else - I don’t know who, but someone. So I looked it up, and it’s true. I cannot disprove this, not even with Google.
Not only that, but this guy has a well known and delicious scallop dish named in his honor. In fact, I’m going to see if I can find the recipe somewhere and share it with you. Okay, there we go, found it:
3 lbs. chorizo
3 cups minced onion
1 cup minced garlic
2 cups minced chives
1 cup extra virgin olive oil
2 cups white wine
2 cups mayonnaise
panko (Japanese bread crumbs) as needed
2 lbs. scallops rough chopped
cleaned scallop shells as needed
Grind the chorizo using a medium die.
Heat a rondeau, and add the oil.
Add the chorizo and begin to render.
Add the onions and garlic and cook until soft.
Add the wine and reduce au sec.
Remove from heat.
Stir in mayo and chives and enough bread crumbs to lightly bind.
(About 3 cups)
Season to taste with S&P
Stir in scallops and use to stuff scallop shells and top each with a pat of butter
Bake in the oven until golden brown
It appears that this recipe makes a whole lot of scallop stuffing, but it’s the only one I could find, so you could dust off those old math skills or save it for a big party. And you should know that Carl’s not just famous, he is the backbone behind our three restaurants, and without him, they would fall over. So don’t mess with Carl. (By the way, giving Carl that certain look is Millie. More on him later.)
