When entertaining, impress your guests and surprise them with a delicious small bite before serving your meal. Make an elegant statement with Stainless Steel Amuse-bouche Spoons from Sur La Table.
Grilled scallops with thyme butter, red chilli & parmesan
6 – 10 scallops (dependent on size)
3 tbsp butter with fleur de sel (soft)
fresh red chilli to taste (finely diced)
1 heaped tbsp fresh thyme leaves
2 tbsp crumbled parmesan
Finely chopped butter lettuce leaves
Clean the scallops. Place in an oven-proof dish.
Pre-heat the grill.
Mix the chilli and thyme in with the butter, then divide between scallops, placing half a teaspoon full of butter on top of each scallop.
Place under the grill for 6 – 10 minutes, until starting to brown on top, but still soft and still slightly transluscent in the very centre.
Arrange a petite bed of finely chopped butter lettuce leaves on an amuse bouche spoon or Chinese soup spoon. Then place a grilled scallop and drizzle some of the melted butter and sprinkle with crumbled parmesan. Serve immediately!
