After a lovely mild January, we have returned to winter weather in Toronto! When I look outside and see the onslaught of snow, I want to pass on going out for dinner and prefer instead to stay inside. But a girl has to eat, right? That’s why when I was invited to try Goodfood X Aloette Go’s Scallops in Miso Dashi Sauce with Melted Leeks, Fingerlings and Shiitake Mushrooms Meal Kit, I replied with a resounding “Yes!”
If you’re not familiar with Goodfood, they offer meal kit delivery featuring fresh and local ingredients, recipe cards and pre-portioned ingredients. Aloette Go is a spin-off restaurant of Alo and Alobar Yorkville, the latter two of which received the first Michelin stars awarded in Canada. Aloette Go received a Michelin guide recommendation so partnering with Goodfood is a winning combination!
Goodfood and Aloette Restaurant are offering two special meal kits to Goodfood subscribers until February 1, 2023: in addition to the Scallops in Miso Dashi Sauce, the second meal kit is Aloette Go’s popular Wagyu Burger.

How to Make the Scallops in Miso Dashi Sauce Meal Kit
What I loved about the Goodfood X Aloette Go meal kit is how easy it is to prepare. I have prepared meal kits in the past that left me exhausted by the time it was time to eat! Basically, the steps to prepare the Scallops in Miso Dashi Sauce include:
- Boiling the potatoes;
- Preparing the mushroom sauce and poaching the mushrooms;
- Sauteing the leeks;
- Preparing the veggie sauce and cooking the veggies;
- Cooking the scallops.
So, there is nothing complicated or time-consuming about making this meal kit.
What I Liked:
The size and number of scallops was impressive. There were 14 large scallops in this meal kit, which is more than enough for two people.
All of the ingredients were fresh! This makes all the difference to taste and presentation!
Confession: I have never cooked with leeks before! I really enjoyed how well they fried up in the pan and their flavour is delicate and delicious! I am now eager to try other recipes that include leeks. Do you have a favourite leek recipe? Please tell me about it in the comment section.
What Could Be Improved:
There were far too many potatoes in the meal kit. I ended up using only half of the potatoes because if I had added all of them to the pot with the other veggies, there would have been a huge imbalance between the potatoes, mushrooms and leeks.
This is a delicious and easy-to-prepare meal kit! If you are a seafood lover like I am, you’ll want to order the Scallops in Miso Dashi Sauce meal kit asap! Remember, it’s available at Goodfood only until February 1, 2023!
