Step 3

For each serving, to order: Reheat 4 oz. pasta in simmering water. Heat 1 oz. truffle butter in a pan and flash saute 2 oz. relish and 1 oz. spinach, just to wilt the leaves. Add 3 scallops and 2 shrimp, along with the drained reheated pasta.

Toss and add 1/4 oz. lemon juice and 1 tsp. herb blend. Season with salt and pepper. Twirl the pasta into the bowl, plating the seafood on top. Sauce it with 1 1/2 oz. beurre blanc and garnish with 1 basil leaf and 1 garlic toast.
