"Fresh seafood reminds everyone of vaca- tion at the Cape or up in Maine," says Becker, who thinks of seared scallops and other sim- ple seafood preparations as the opposite of a hearty winter dish, such as braised beef.

Swirl in the onions and butter. n Combine the seared scallops with the mussels, tossing evenly to coat with the sauce. Season to taste with salt and pepper. n Meanwhile, in a large pot, bring 6 quarts of water to a boil. Add a pinch of salt and the linguine, stirring to prevent the pasta from stick- ing. Cook for 6 minutes, or until al dente. Drain thoroughly. n Toss the linguine with the seafood, and then evenly distribute among serving bowls. Garnish with the basil and the parsley and serve immediately. Note: To make caramelized onions, thinly slice 2 Spanish onions. Sauté the onions in 1 Tbsp. butter and 1 tsp. extra-virgin olive oil until they begin to brown. Add 1 ∕2 cup water and continue to sauté until the water evaporates. Add 1 tsp. brown sugar, 1 Tbsp. balsamic vinegar and sauté until the liquid is completely reduced. Season to taste with salt and pepper. The caramelized onions may be made in advance. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 1 week. Serves 4-6
