Scallop, Bacon, Asparagus and Spinach CarbonaraMany people love the classic combination of scallops wrapped with bacon. Some may call this a dated cliché appetizer, but not me. I think it is one of the most-beloved and legitimate pairings in our ingredient base here in Nova Scotia. However, you can play with the combination and create some new dishes that speak to a more modern palate. Pasta dishes like carbonara are incredibly popular in Italian restaurants here, but also quite simple to make yourself. This version is one that takes the famous Digby scallop, our excellent smokehouse bacon and two of our most commonly found spring vegetables and elevates them in a very non-traditional, “Nova Scotia meets Italy” comforting dish that I love.
