Dad would shoot me if he knew I was giving away his secrets! You'll love this if you love scallops and pepper!!! Really easy and delish on a cold day warms up the blood...hehe. Note: all these ingredient amounts are estimates, you may need to add more cream or onion depending how much you want to make.

  1. Chop the onion, and fry with scallops for around 4-5 mins.
  2. Melt the butter in pan, when melted add flour, and whisk. Add the cream gradually, stirring each time.
  3. Add the scallops to the cream mix, bring to boil and simmer for 5 mins until scallops are cooked through. Then add the grated smoked cheese and mix

Question: Clarification The recipe 1.cook the onion and fry with scallops for around 4-5 mins Presumably fry in some of the butter then 3. Add the scallops to the cream mix etc So the scallops are actually cooked all up for 10 mins ?? - 09 Mar 2015
