I went on a shopping trip with my students & got these nice big scallops @ Seafood Bargains At Woodlands Terrace. It came in a pack of 9. Since there were only 5 guests, I’d 4 to experiment with in the morning. My son is always happy to be my guinea pig & I know just one scallop isn't going to be enough for him.
When I was preparing the filling, I didn’t add Parmesan Cheese initially. The scallops came out a little bland, somehow lacking some punch. But I didn't want to add salt to destroy the natural taste. So I decided to sprinkle Parmesan cheese just before adding the Mozzarella & it turned out perfect! Here’s presenting you my very own Baked Scallop x'mas recipe!
5 Lemon wedges
1 Strip of streaky bacon
Parmesan & Mozzarella cheese for toppings
Butter for greasing
1 tsp Garlic (chopped)
1 tbsp Butter
1 tsp Extra-virgin Olive Oil
½ tsp Parsley flakes
1 tsp Panko crumbs
- Remove gills by using a toothpick. Rinse thoroughly to remove any dirt.
- Lightly grease shells with butter. Mix fillings in a bowl & spread on scallops.
- Cut bacon into strips & put them on seafood. Sprinkle Parmesan Cheese & then top with Mozzarella Cheese.
- Preheat oven to 250 deg & bake for 10mins. Serve with lemon wedge. Here’s your Baked Cheesy Bacon Scallops, fresh from the oven!
