So what to have with champagne cocktails? I’d thought of doing something with oysters but think I’m still a bit scared of them! So opted for scallops instead..
This is only the second time I’ve cooked with scallops but I’ve been eating them more when in restaurants and do really like them! I am worried about both overlooking and undercooking! Anyway I got 6 scallops for the two of us..
They are sprinkled with salt, pepper and lemon juice..
Then each one is wrapped in a slice of streaky bacon..
I cooked them under the grill for roughly 5 minutes. I’d hoped to have some lovely pictures of the cooked scallops but as usual once it’s dark in my kitchen everything looks rubbish..
I did make a tartare sauce of sorts, I mixed mayonnaise with chives, gherkins and capers..
So this recipe is really meant to be an appetiser but I was making this for our tea! So what to serve with scallops and bacon…..chips!
It’s may seem like a very unusual Tuesday night dinner, but I thoroughly enjoyed scallops and bacon with chips, washed down with champagne cocktails!
The scallops were lovely and soft and quite sweet, which combined with the salty bacon is really good! I don’t think they were overcooked which is good, and am just wishing I’d made more!
Would I make this again? Yes!
