Roasted Garlic Pasta Spaghetti with Pan Seared Scallops recipe is one of my favourite meals al the time. The roasted garlic tomato for pasta is actually tomato based sauce with tons of roasted garlic. Instead of fresh tomato that usually used on roasted garlic sauce, i’m using my leftover roasted garlic from making Pan Seared Grouper Fillet with Roasted Tomato Sauce Recipe. Then you know what, i guess this must be the reason why my niece can’t stop diggin into the rosted garlic spaghetti.

Don’t get me wrong, roasted garlic got much more milder garlicky flavour than sauteed or deep fried garlic. Perfectly roasted garic got  caramelized sweet and also savoury hint, you can even barely eat it like roasted potato. Pan seared scallops with perfectly charred outside and bounchy, juicy and also crunchy meat inside will tickle your taste buds. Make sure you’ve got a “dry scallop”instean the ” wet scallop”. Scallops which threated with sodium tripolyphosphate (STPP)  called “wet scallop” while the “dry scallops” didn’t.  STPP causes the scallops to absorb moisture prior to the freezing process, thereby getting a better price per unit of weight. It’s easy to diffrenciated dry and wet scallop, “dry scallop” is usually got whitish creamy translucent color, while the “wet scallop” is usually got whitish opaque  color.

Making oven roasted garlic recipe is so easy to do. Simply cut the tips end of the garlic bulp to made it a lot easier to extract after roasted, toss the garlic with olive oil and season it with salt and black pepper evenly, then lay them with the bottom side down in the oven tray. Use a big enough baking tray, so the garlic are not too crowded. You want room between them for the moisture to escape, which concentrates the garlic flavor. Bake for 30-45 minutes (depending of the garlic bulb size) in 482ºF (250ºC), or until the garlic are completely softened and wilted, and start to wrinkle and some of the them charred. The garlic bulb may take longer to roast, depending on the size and the ammount of your garlic. The oven roasted garlic will keep for about three days in the refrigerator and about 6 days if you packed it with oil, i also can be frozen for up to six months.

  1. A lot of people I know don’t like garlic (because of the smell), but I for one like garlic a lot. Your roasted garlic pasta looks absolutely delicious! Though I see that it contains tomato sauce – I love tomato sauce but I’ve been advised by my doctor not to eat that! 😛

  2. Baru semalam pingin makan spageti, eh muncul disini. Jadi mesti wajib meluncur nich ntar sore. gw suka banget masakan yg bau nya terasa bawang putih 🙂 atau black papper

  3. Delicious and heavenly. Never cooked scallops before. Its expensive over here, therefore I prefer local ingredients. That said, its perfect into this dish you’ve shared.

  4. I love scallops! These can be cooked in so many ways…but I particularly loved the way you made them. Thanks!

  5. Roasted garlic lover here! Any dish that has an abundance of roasted garlic as this dish does is going to get served at my table. I do have one question – when you say “3 -4 bulbs of roasted garlic” does that mean 3 to 4 “heads” or “cloves”? Of course I could live with either. 🙂 Fabulous dish!

  6. I can just imagine how beautifully those sweet notes of the garlic must have worked with the scallop! Fabulous recipe!

  7. Dedy, thanks for visiting my site that lead me to yours. I am so amaze of your ability to cook, and study all together. Your recipes are all delicious and mouth watering too, make me miss Indonesian food even more. Anyway, just dropping by to say thank you. And, keep up the good work!

  8. Wow, roasted garlic and pan seared baby scallops…yum! I can only imagine how this pasta tastes…mouthwatering!
    Great recipe Dedy…have a wonderful week 😀

  9. Pasta! My daughter would love this. She loves pasta. Perhaps I can use prawns – fresh scallops not easily available here and if they are, they are very expensive.

  10. First, i love the new look of your blog,…pretty cool too! 🙂 Yes! Your baby scallops pasta dish looks amazing, tasty & awesome at the same time! Yummmm! x

  11. Comes to think of it, I don’t think I’ve tried making pasta with scallops before. Love that you always use a lot of seafood in your dishes. I used to eat a lot more seafood (and so many kinds) when I was in Japan…. I miss it!
