Maine Dayboat Scallops, 1 lb , 1 oz chili paste in soybean oil, 1/8 cup crispy fried shallots, recipe card. Lime and cilantro not included.
Serves 4 - 6 as an appetizer
This has been described by several different people as “the perfect seafood appetizer”. Even folks who think they don’t like raw seafood rave about this perfect combination of creamy, salty, sweet, sour, umami crispy deliciousness. To assemble, slice each scallop into three or four discs (depending on size). Arrange on a plate or a scallop shell, smear on a bit of chili paste, then top with crispy fried shallots. We recommend you spritz generously with fresh lime juice and sprinkle with torn cilantro leaves (not included) for an absolutely perfect appetizer. NOTE: gluten free, contains soy.
You're going to LOVE this chili paste - it's just a wonderful combination of salty, sweet, umami and heat. But it's just a mild heat...
This makes a wonderful gift, because it's such a fun thing to discover just how delicious raw scallops can be!
