“Luscious yet Simple-Making Valentine’s Dish Most Ideal For Your Loved One Who Prefer A Stay-Home Celebration”

If you agree with me that going out for romantic dining during the yearly Valentine’s Day, is a waste of money, try to create your own romantic menu at home then!

You will definitely enjoy this simple-making, and yet, quality seafood dish which romance you and your loved one on this specially romantic occasion. Surprise sweetheart in this coming Valentine’s Day celebration!

Cheesy Scallop

Very easy to get the ingredients and to prepare it with in 5 minutes and to get it serves in less than 30 minutes.

6 – 8 frozen half shell scallop
200 gram of shredded Mozzarella cheese (about 1 small cup)
100 gram of shredded Cheddar cheese
1 tablespoon of butter, melted
Sprinkles of ground black pepper

1) Place frozen scallop with half shell intact on the baking tray.

2) Spread a little butter on each scallop. Then, top with 1 teaspoon of shredded Cheddar cheese, and shredded Mozzarella cheese covering full on top of each scallop.

3) Sprinkle ground black pepper.

4) Preheat oven for 5 minutes. Bake scallop at 170 degree celsius (°C) for 25 min, or until cheese melted with some browning around the edge of the shell. Serve.

Because I prefer simple taste for scallop dish, and to enjoy the real cheesy taste in the palate, I did not add any other toppings, such as chopped ham, onion or minced garlic.

If you prefer stronger taste, please add the above mentioned. For more fragrance, sprinkle some white wine before adding cheese and/or other toppings.

Each cheesy scallop in this recipe counts about 170kcal.

Well, I think this is a must-try recipe for a romantic celebration with your Valentine, if you really wish to save your (or his) extra expenses on dining out, and to replace it with a hassle-free home-cooking meal here. This is a guaranteed success dish even if you are not a season cook, trust me (winking smile)!

Tips: Frozen scallop is easily found in various supermarkets. I got mine which comes in a packet from NTUC Extra. Try frozen food section. This packet of 8 costs about $12 – $15.
