Personal thoughts from the Festival Director - not necessarily endorsed by the Festival Organisers.

Scollops wrapped in Bacon

I fancied cooking scollops wrapped in bacon for breakfast on New Years Day for members of The Longslade Consort. However, I could not at first work out how to get the scollops cooked but not over cooked while the bacon was crisp. Here is what I did:

Wrap each scollop up in a rasher of bacon and fasten with a tooth pick. Cook for 20 minutes in a hot oven (210 degreegs fan) and the bacon was crispy and the scollops juicy. I served with a sauce made of butter and garlic and a squeeze of lime. For carbohydrate, I fried some bread in turkey dripping. Happy New Year.
