Seared Scallop Polenta Bites with Tomato Pesto
I love Polenta! Probably because I grew up eating it but never being able to master the art of perfectly cooking polenta. So finding it pre-made and ready to heat up (sauté, grill, bake, you name it!) was a game changer for me. Polenta is such a great ingredient to add to your dinner parties and get togethers. And I haven’t come across a guest yet who didn’t enjoy it. These bites are delicious and rich in flavor. Pair them with a Malbec or Shiraz.

Seared Scallop Polenta Bites with Basil Pesto
Because I love pestos and polenta, why not try it both ways! The basil pesto offers a lighter flavor and the drizzle of balsamic glaze is the perfect amount of sweetness to these bites! For these I suggest a crisp Riesling or a Pinot Grigio!

Wonton Shrimp Cups
I love these Wonton Shrimp Cups because they are so fun to make and you really can get as creative as you’d like. The Cremé Fraîche takes it to another level, offering your guests a creamy and decadent bite in one! Pair these with a fruity Sangria or Chardonnay.

Swordfish with Tomato & Corn Salad
Summer is always an inspiration for light and delicious food. We love grilling and we love seafood so it’s an easy choice when deciding what to make for dinner! This grilled swordfish is so delicious and simple to put together. The tomato and corn salad is a family favorite and adds a refreshing crunch to the meal! We enjoy this with an ice cold IPA or a crisp bottle of Rosé.

Seared Scallops and Peach Salsa
Date night in, but make it fancy right? That was the goal with this dish. We love the savory yet delicate flavors of the seared scallops, and the light sweetness of the peach salsa takes it to the next level. You’ll be sure to impress your date. This dish is light but filling, and can be paired with a table white wine or a rich Malbec.
