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!

Trout in Parma Ham is a fabulous example of an excellent little recipe being made great, simply by the addition of a couple of slices of Parma ham.
Sashimi is often the first course in a formal Japanese meal, but it can also be the main course, presented with rice and miso soup in separate bowls.
Monkfish is a firm fish, once called "the poor man's lobster" because its texture, when cooked properly, is really similar to lobster.
