I am making a dinner for my fiance which will consist of simply seared scallops & shrimp, with a cheesy polenta (using Parmigiano-Reggiano). I want to add a little something else to the polenta recipe, however, and I was thinking that 2 chopped shallots and a couple tablespoons of freshly chopped parsley might pair nicely. I am new to cooking, and rarely (if ever) do I stray from a written recipe. This being the first time I've ever really tried to come up with a recipe of my own, I wanted some seasoned (pun TOTALLY intended) responses. Any and all criticism enthusiastically welcomed!
