From gourmet restaurants to knock-out street vendors, you will find a variety of outstanding options for authentic and satisfying plates. Sometimes, and especially now, we prefer to eat at home, and there’s no reason why you can’t make an spectacular seafood dish at home.
Chef Martin Morales shows us how to make conchitas a la parmesana, or parmesan scallops, a mouthwatering appetizer that’s easy and fun to prepare at home.
30g cheddar cheese
50g parmesan cheese
Fine sea salt
Step 1: Clean and prepare the scallops
Step 2: Grate the cheddar cheese & parmesan cheese
Step 3: Layer the scallops on the shells, squeeze lime over and add a knob of butter to each scallop. Drizzle some pisco over if you have it along with some salt, pepper & Worcestershire Sauce
Step 4: Put the cheddar cheese and parmesan on top of the scallops.
Step 5: Get the grill hot and place the shells underneath
Step 6: Grill until the cheese is bubbling and golden, plate and enjoy!
