Scallops with Vegetable Spaghetti on Saffron Sauce

My husband is a huge scallop fan. He eats scallops any time they’re on the menu in a restaurant. In Luxembourg, we’re fortunate to get sashimi-grade scallops at our local supermarket, which allows me to experiment with different kinds of recipes.

Filled Meatballs in Tomato Gravy

Filled Meatballs in Tomato Gravy

Nearly every culture has recipes for meatballs and a large variety of flavors exists. In this recipe I combine flavors from the Mediterranean. I use an organic mix of spices and flowers. There are a few organic products available on the market. I used the one from “Sonnentor” and it’s called “good mood”/”Gute Laune” (in German)! It’s a blend of the following: sea salt, garlic, basil, wild garlic, oregano, calendula, rosemary, thyme, rose petals & grain flowers. If you’re unable to find a ready-made blend, you can create your own by mixing as many of the above as you have available.

Only the cooking time may vary.
