An Unusual Recipe

Recipe by  

Surf and Turf Butties combine two of my favourite comfort foods - bacon and scallops. The combination of the tastes and textures is a marriage made in heaven - sweet, delicate scallops with crisp, salty bacon... Mmmmmmm!

How to Cook Surf and Turf Buttie

  1. Finely slice the spring onions and put to one side. In a large frying pan (skillet), cook the bacon for about 8-10 minutes over medium heat until the fat is rendered and the bacon is crisp. Remove from the pan, drain on a paper-towel-lined plate and cut the rashers in two crosswise.
  2. In the same pan, increase the heat a little and cook the scallops in the bacon fat. Cook for two minutes, and then flip. Once flipped, add a small knob of butter to the pan and add the scallions. Cook for a further one to two minutes until the scallops are cooked through but still tender.
  3. Build each sandwich with a layer of bacon pieces, the warm scallops, a sprinkle of spring onions and some of the salty juices from the pan. Serve immediately.

 
Graham GRAHAM'S HOT TIP:
When cooking scallops, never overcrowd the pan, or the scallops will steam rather than sear.

Trout is an exquisite fish with the most delicate texture and flavour. It is not suitable for poaching but tastes delectable straight from the grill.
