Spaghetti with scallops and chorizo

I've had scallops and bacon, and I love it, but when I saw Nigella Lawson's recipe with scallops and chorizo, I knew I had to try it. Of course, I fiddled with it and this was the result. Here's what I used for about 4 portions:

150g scallops
150g chorizo sausage, sliced into rounds
1 shallot, finely chopped
1 tbsp butter
½ glass of dry white wine
500g spaghetti, cooked
chopped parsley, to garnish

In a frying pan, I dry-fried the chorizo till crisp for about 1 minute on each side. I discarded the oil it released. In another frying pan, I melted the butter and cooked the shallot, then added the scallops. I cooked the scallops briefly on each side until just cooked. Then, on high heat, I added the wine and the cooked chorizo. I let the wine bubble and reduce, then I added the just-cooked and drained spaghetti. Don't drain the spaghetti till absolutely dry or rinse them, otherwise they will not absorb the sauce! Serve garnished with chopped parsley. Bon Appétit!
