Rick Moonen, and his restaurant RM Seafood here in town, are known for their longstanding belief in sustainable seafood. I've been to RM Seafood and never regretted it for a second. I ordered the cioppino there, and it contained the biggest and most delicious mussels I've ever had.
Our dishes today were fried calamari with two different aiolis, and scallops in a mushroom cream sauce. The boys took over the calamari while I whipped up the scallop dish in about 20 minutes. They were still working, and I had leftover scallops, so I made another batch. Chef liked everything we made today. We didn't get a "perfect" but he said everything was seasoned nicely and was delicious.
I am so excited for class tomorrow.
