Scallops in the Flavours of Îles de la Madeleine
- 12 live scallops in the shell
- Huile Tomatolé*
- Slices of La Tomme des Demoiselles cheese by Pied de Vent in Îles de la Madeleine*
- Fresh parsley or cilantro, chopped
If you can’t find Huile Tomatolé, made in Îles de la Madeleine, use olive oil.
If you can’t find Pied-de-Vent cheese, substitute a full bodied soft cheese made from whole milk.
Preheat a barbecue or oven to 350° F (180°C).
Open scallops in the half shell, retaining the muscle, gonad and mantle.
Add a little oil to each shell. Top with a thin slice of cheese. Set the shells on the barbecue grill or place in the oven on a cookie sheet. Close the barbecue lid or oven. Cook for about 10 minutes, or until the muscle has detached from the shell. Remove and garnish with herbs.
