My good friend came for lunch and I wanted to make it special but not go crazy.
Okay ,I went crazy.
The menu was kind of nice.
Corn chowder, scallop sliders, grilled pork sliders. sausage salad with balsamic dressing and spinach pies.
Tea and cookies were an after thought.
I love to cook for people I like so this was fun.
Start with a package of dinner size potato rolls. They are nice and soft.
Pat dry 8 large scallops. The scallops should almost be the size of the roll.
Dredge them in a 1/2 cup of flour with 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon black pepper.
Mix two tablespoons butter and two tablespoons of oil in a nonstick skillet.
Heat on medium high and place each scallop in the hot pan and don’t move them or let them touch.
Cook for a couple of minutes till there is a nice brown crust on the bottom.
Turn over and brown the other side.
Slice open the rolls and put a 3/4 teaspoon of tartar sauce on one side.
Then one slice of bacon
One slice of tomato
handful of lettuce or arugula
One tablespoon of diced scallions
Drizzle of lemon garlic salad dressing
These are so good.
Hope you enjoy them.
