Honey Tips

Honey Is Sweeter Than Sugar

Due to the high level of fructose, honey is 25% sweeter than table sugar.


While pasta is cooking, heat oil in a large skillet. Add scallops and shrimp and saute until just cooked through, about 5 minutes. Remove seafood from pan, set aside. Add garlic to the same skillet and saute a few minutes. Add tomatoes, honey and half of the basil. Simmer about 10 minutes, until tomatoes begin to cook down. Add clam juice and heavy cream. Continue to simmer 5 minutes. Stir in cooked scallops and shrimp.
Drain pasta and place in a large bowl. Spoon seafood sauce on top, add remaining basil, season with salt and pepper and toss. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese if desired.
