There’s no need to go to an Italian restaurant to enjoy this classic pasta dish, and you can even have it gluten-free. You can prepare it in minutes with the convenience of the frozen seafood available on Gerald.ph.

Ingredients
1 pack Gerald.ph gluten-free spaghetti
1/2 cup reserved pasta water
1 pack scallops (roe off)
1/2 pack mussels (shell off)
3/4 cup dry white wine
1/4 cup frozen chopped parsley
2-3 tbs garlic herb butter
4 cloves garlic, chopped
2-3 tbs. flour
2 tbs. olive oil
Salt and fresh ground pepper to taste
Directions
1.In a large pot, cook pasta until al dente or tender to the bite. Drain and set aside some pasta water.
2. Lightly dredge each scallop in a bowl full of flour and season with a bit of salt and pepper. Shake off the excess. In a skillet over medium-high heat, add olive oil and half of the garlic herb butter. Saute scallops for about 2-3 minutes on one side until just beginning to brown, then carefully turn over and continue cooking for another 2-3 minutes.
3. Add chopped garlic into the skillet and saute for 30-40 seconds – do not let it brown. Add the wine and a little bit of the pasta water, about 1/4 cup. Then add mussels and cover for 3-4 minutes. Stir.
4. Add cooked pasta and season with additional salt and remaining herb butter. Add more pasta water or a touch of wine if you prefer more broth. Sprinkle with parsley and toss gently to combine.
Voila, a delightful pasta dish!

Gluten-Free Breads and Treats You’ll Love! Available in the Philippines

Many of you know us at GERALD.ph for our freshly baked breads and pastries. But I have also heard from some customers  to make some gluten-free options options for them. That’s why this year, we also started introducing gluten-free food items so that these customers can also enjoy bread, cookies, muffins, pizza, and more.

In simple terms, gluten constitutes about 80% of the protein in common grains such as wheat, rye, barley and oats. Some people can have an allergy or intolerance towards gluten, so they must follow a gluten-free diet for medical reasons.

Our gluten-free items are prepared in a separate facility from our regular breads and pastries, so there is no fear of cross contamination. Most of our gluten-free items are also vegan (except the gluten-free salami pizza) and dairy-free!

To give you an idea of the substitutes for flour in our gluten-free products, here’s the list for our top 5 best-selling gluten-free items:

Gluten-free chocolate chip cookies (vegan)  All-purpose gluten-free flour, baking soda, xanthan gum, flaxseed, coconut oil, coco sugar, vanilla extract, salt, cocoa nibs or dairy free chocolate chips
