Scallops with almonds and bacon
Angela is always asking for scallops. And for good reason, they are delicious! We've tried them a few times with pretty good success but I think this has been our best result.
4 slices of bacon (my favorite ingredient)
1/2 cup almonds - we started with sliced almonds
1 large handful of parsley
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon butter
Cook the bacon and save the skillet and grease. Crumble or cut bacon into food processor and pulse with almond and parsley.
On medium high heat, add scallops to skillet and cook 2 minutes on each side until nice and brown. Add 1-2 minutes each side for firmer texture.
Plate the finished scallops and sprinkle with bacon and almond mixture. We found this recipe in the appetizer section of Quick and Easy Primal cookbook. We added a small salad to make it a meal...yum!
