It’s a Seafood Trio

I have alot of food in the pantry and the freezer. I mean A LOT of food. Typically I do have plenty on hand because we buy some items in bulk at Costco and we tend to keep a 1/4 to 1/2 beef in the freezer as well. I like to bake and since I can’t eat all that I bake or I would weigh 400 lbs., they end up in the freezer as well until guests arrive or I send the leftovers to work with my husband. Due to some additional shopping thanks to COVID-19, my shelves are a bit full. To top it off, an Alaska fisherman comes to town every couple of months to sell seafood near the local Simms headquarters so I even have seafood. After a brief inventory of some of the oldest items, I realized we had an amazing box of shrimp, at the same time my daughter (quarantining from New York/Brooklyn) requested Seared Scallops with Polenta. This being just days before my husband’s birthday, I asked him what he would like me to fix and he suggested, Ravioli. Since I’ve been wanting to make scratch Lobster Ravioli for quite some time, things fell into place for a 3-day weekend centered on seafood. If we have to “shelter in place,” we might as well do it in style!
