Ingredients

  • 6 scallops (and shells)
  • 1 lime zest (and juice)
  • 1 bunch coriander
  • 1 piece ginger
  • 20 grams unsalted butter (melted)
  • coarse salt
  • 1 puff pastry
  • 1 egg yolk

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees Celsius.
  2. Clean scallops well. If already clean, simply rinse under cold water. Place on paper towel and dry quickly.
  3. Grate the green lime to get a thin zest, chop half of the bunch of coriander, and grate 3 centimeters of ginger. Mix the ingredients together, add the melted butter, then the juice of half a lime. Add salt.
  4. Place scallops in each shell, add a teaspoon of the butter / herb mixture. Close the shell and brush the edges (2 centimeters high) with egg yolk.
  5. Cut strips of puff pastry about 7 centimeters wide, and the length of the shell tower (about 20 centimeters).
  6. Paste them on the shell so that it closes the edges.
  7. Glaze the pastry with egg yolk.
  8. Bake for 20 minutes until golden.

This was a very creative way to cook scallops in their shell. I loved the combination of lime, cilantro and ginger with the scallops. I will absolutely make these again.
