Irresistible Scallops

17 Oct

Something simple I discovered last night and thought someone out there might be interested.

Roast (biggish) scallops for 8 minutes at 200C.

Serve drizzled with high grade Spanish olive oil – nothing else required.

Absolutely incredible taste combination.  Well worth trying.  😀

    We love sea scallops and you are so right….. no embellishment necessary! The same is true for Alaska halibut….. no sauces, nothing but butter or olive oil. The best I’ve ever had was on the few trips we took when our daughter lived in AK. Can you imagine Fish & Chips made with fresh-caught halibut, because there was so much it was served every way possible!

    Right now, fresh-caught halibut shipped down to California is over $25/lb (+ shipping), IF you can get it.

    A few years ago we stayed for a few days at Ucluelet on the west coast of Vancouver Island. One of the best meals we had was halibut and chips from the semi-permanent fish ‘n chip caravan. It was run like a restaurant and my goodness the fish was fantastic!
    So I can appreciate where you’re coming from with the Alaskan halibut 😀 .

    We have fantastic seafood here but most is shipped to France or Spain 😦 . The mass market never developed in Scotland…but things are improving. Still not cheap mind you. On our way home we stopped at the Loch Leven Seafood Cafe shop and picked up crayfish tails, langoustines, mussels and scallops. Only the mussels left (sigh). This is the place we pick up our Spanish olive oil.
