Seafood Appetizer

Among my favourite seafood appetisers recipes is the seafood recipe of Seared Scallops with White Wine and Bacon.

This great party appetizer recipe is not only very tasty, easy to prepare but looks impressive on the party table. So you can you this easy party recipe for your next birthday party celebration, or bring for the baby shower gathering of girlfriends, or use as your next Christmas party appetizer.

Seared Scallops with White Wine and Bacon

Ingredients

• 6 slice bacon, shredded
• 500 g scallops
• salt
• freshly ground pepper
• 2 tbsp shallot (minced, shallots)
• 1 cup white wine
• 2 tbsp unsalted butter
• Pencil leaks
• Flying fish raw for garnish

Heat a large sauté pan over medium-low heat, and add shredded bacon. Cook slowly, stirring frequently, until brown and crisp, about 8 minutes. Remove bacon with a slotted spoon, and transfer to a paper-towel-lined plate.

Drain excess fat, leaving a thin coat on the bottom of a pan. Increase heat to medium, add scallops to pan, and sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste. Cook until golden brown and opaque, about 2 minutes per side. Don’t overcook.

Transfer scallops to the serving dish, I like to use the scallop shells for nicer presentation.

Add shallots to pan. When shallots are translucent, add white wine; scrape browned bits from bottom of pan with a wooden spoon. Cook until liquid is reduced by half, 3 to 4 minutes. Stir in butter, and pour over scallops; top with reserved bacon.
Serve over grilled pencil leaks and garnish with some flying fish roe.

Enjoy!
