BACON SCALLOP SEA SHELLS
This recipe received honorable mention in Athens Holiday Mini Fillo Shells Recipe Contest.
8 slices bacon
30 bay scallops
1/4 cup mayonnaise
2 teaspoons chopped capers
1 teaspoon pickle relish
1 teaspoons minced green onion tops
1/2 clove minced garlic
30 Athens® Mini Fillo Shells (2 boxes)
1 tablespoon minced cilantro, for garnish
In a medium pan, cook bacon until nearly done but not crisp, and drain. Cut each slice in half crosswise, then in half lengthwise. Wrap a piece of bacon around each scallop, securing with a toothpick. Place scallops on a baking sheet and bake in preheated 350°F oven for 10 minutes or until bacon is crisp and scallops are opaque.
In a small mixing bowl, blend mayonnaise, capers, relish, green onion and garlic. Place 1/2 teaspoon of mayonnaise mixture into each Fillo Shell. Remove toothpicks and place a bacon wrapped scallop on top of the mixture. Garnish with minced cilantro. Serve immediately.
