Happy Hour Scallop Tartare
Posted on July 21, 2012
Last night was hella fun! But the night started with a happy hour hosted at our condo with a small appetizer prepared by me, inspired by Gordon Ramsay.
Earlier in the day I was at Taylor Shellfish on Capitol Hill and I bought diver scallops. I have watched Gordon Ramsay make Scallop tartare 10x but I never have been able to find diver scallops. I am so used to seeing scallops without a shell I just figured they sit at the bottom of the ocean like that I have tried to make scallop tarter before with regular ‘dredged’ scallops but the flavor was just off. Without rambling too much here is this amazing happy hour appetizer recipe.
- Creme Fraiche
- Lettuce (I think any type would work)
As for the ingredients above. About a healthy table spoon of each is enough (besides the lettuce) which you use as a wrap.
This is a great, fresh and light appetizer before tipping back martinis at Flying Fish!
Have a great Saturday!
