Seafood Ramekin

We had a few people over for lunch today in spite of the plastic current hanging from the ceiling to shield the rest of the house from the dust created by the fireplace remover. Ambiance for days!  Paper napkins.

The menu was shrimp and scallops with a garlic-parsley butter, tajine roasted veal, mashed potatoes, broccoli gratin, Papillon Roquefort salad with quail eggs and pear compote panna cotta with strawberries.

The vegetables cooked with the veal, tricolor-ed bell peppers, shallots, garlic and quartered onions were, I thought, better than last time.

Jade found some gorgeous strawberries from Germany in the market to top the pear compote panna cotta.   Juicy and sweet!

Seafood Ramekin  

1lb shelled scallops

1lb shrimp, peeled and cleaned

3 tbsp butter

3 large garlic cloves, finely chopped

2 tbsp parsley, chopped

Buttered panko bread crumbs

Saute the scallops and shrimp in the butter on high heat for about 3 minutes.  Remove and set aside.  Add the garlic to the pan and saute until it begins to brown, slightly. Remove from the flame and add the parsley and seafood, mixing well.

Divide the seafood between 6 ramekins, sprinkle with the bread crumbs and broil until the bread crumbs are brown.  Serve with a crusty, fresh baguette.

Note:  Picture of seafood ramekin above is without the bread crumbs

Wine suggestion:  Bourgogne Aligote

  1. Can I come? 😀 In all seriousness, those prawns look delightful, as does the whole meal. I’m so jealous that you do this sort of thing.

  2. The food looks and sounds delicious!

    We cannot get good strawberries in the Northern Rockies at this time of year. Apples and pears for us. Your photo shows a perfect strawberry, so appetizing.

    Lovely stuff indeed. I have no excuse for not trying the starter. We get beautiful scallops and prawns here in Dublin. The panacotta looks fantastic.

    As I comment, I am digesting a meal of oven roasted spiced chicken pieces served with quartered onions,butternut squash, sweet potato, three colour peppers, the longer sweet peppers and a head of garlic. Fantastic food at this time of year. I was too disorganised today to get the camera out.

    • Thanks Conor. I’ve had your Dublin prawns and they were fantastic! In fact, I’ve had a lot of good meals in Dublin.

      Too bad about the camera, that meal sounds like something I’d like to drool over 🙂

  6. Beautiful. Construction dust really is the worst, but looks like you’re making the most of the situation.
