Scallops and Bacon

Scallops and bacon are a match made in heaven.

The seafood couple came into work again. They had fresh scallops from Whitianga this morning and seeing as it is the Whitianga Scallop Festival this weekend, what could be more appropriate than eating a whole lot of scallops?

2 course dinner with Scallops and Bacon

Starter: 5 Pan fried scallops wrapped in bacon with tartar sauce.

Wrap each scallop with a strip of bacon and secure with a toothpick. Pan fry with a bit of butter. Season lightly with herbs, salt and pepper.

Serve with tartar sauce.

Tartar Sauce: mayo, sour cream, chopped gherkins, finely chopped red onion.

Main Course: Scallops and Bacon pasta

Cook pasta according to instructions.

Saute vegies in a little oil: sliced courgette, sliced red onion, sliced garlic. Remove from heat and set aside.

Finely chop 4 slices of bacon (I tried Danish eye bacon) and fry in oil. Add scallops to the pan. Once scallops are done, add 2 tablespoons of sour cream, 2 table spoons of tomato paste.

Drain pasta and arrange on a plate. Add saute vegetables and top with bacon/scallop sauce.

Serve immediately!
