Hey vinoroma: Your comment & http://www.brisbanefoodie.com.au/archives/1827

make me think of:

zucchini blossoms steamed + pistachio (nutty) + scallops (also nutty when seared)

when I'm too lazy to fry the blossoms, I just steam them (filled with ricotta) and serve on marinated slices of zucchini. Can see adding small crunchy pieces of pistacchio to the filling for more texture.

Hey Mrjj, I stuffed zucchini blossoms with ricotta (flavored with a hint of cinnamon), battered and fried them. The sauce was a pesto of pistachio, basil, lemon, salt and olive oil. I liked the nutty pistachio with the crunchy blossoms! So I dropped that into the cuuks machine..

This sounds great but how would you combine them? Stuffed and steamed/fried or as a salad?
