How to Cook Oak-Smoked Queenies
- Mix together the sherry and the sugar then add the queen scallops. Allow to marinade for at least an hour. Cut the bacon rashers (slices) in half lengthways then again in half across the width (4 strips of bacon from each rasher). Place one queen scallop onto a water chestnut and wrap around the circular side with a strip of oak-smoked bacon, securing with a toothpick or skewer. Do the same for each queenie. Grill (broil) all of the queenie parcels until the bacon is cooked - about 5 - 6 minutes. Serve hot with a little Basmati rice.
GRAHAM'S HOT TIP:
If you can't get oak-smoked bacon, you can use any smoked bacon. It won't be quite the same, but it will still taste good.
Reviews of Oak-Smoked Queenies
August 07 2014
When I think of these, I immediately start humming the Frankie Valli song, "Can't Take My Eyes Off of You" because as soon as these are cooked and on the plate I really can't take my eyes off them. They are, as the song says, "Too Good To Be True". These are monsters in the nicest possible way. I love them!

No mess, no fuss, just throw it in the oven and leave it alone till it's ready to eat. That's the approximate theory! How close do we get?
There are lots of recipes for some foods, but here we offer a selection of recipes that are truly out of the ordinary. You'll be amazed.
Pork, beef, turkey, it doesn't matter - a sausage is a great way to get protein on you plate quickly and easily with maximum pleasure!
Other Fish & Seafood Recipes
In case you've not come across them before, "Queenies" are small scallops about ½" - ¾" (1cm - 2cm) diameter - sometimes called "bay scallops"
A lovely, spicy new way with salmon, with the horseradish perfectly complementing the fish, and a good source of omega-3 to boot.
Any firm white fish will do for this simple recipe although cod, hake or plaice are probably the best choice. The mustard adds a delicate flavour.
