i found a recipe on fast paleo that i tried out tonight. i had some scallops and had no clue what to do with them. so here goes!

Ingredients (with my adaptations)
1 bag scallops (500g)
1 large chopped onion
3 chopped garlic cloves
2 rashers of bacon chopped (except i had no clue what a rasher was, so i just took about 7-8 strips or so and chopped it up)
1 can diced/chopped tomato
1 large field mushroom (i used 8 oz of baby bella mushrooms, once again, clueless about a field mushroom)
1 heaped dollop of double cream (if i would have used cream, it would have been sour cream, not sure what double cream is, but i forgot... oops!)
1 T ghee (i used butter b/c i still don't know what ghee is, i'm somewhat slow here)
1 t basil, 1 t parsley
3/4 t chili flakes, salt, pepper

1. Melt the ghee/butter in the pot, add onions, garlic and cook until it begins to turn translucent. Add bacon and cook for a few minutes
2. Add tomatoes, herbs and spices and cook for about 10 minutes on low
3. Stir in scallops and cook for 2 minutes
4. Take off heat and DON"T FORGET to add in the cream.
Put on a bed of cauliflower (i used diced up zucchini) and then top with parmesan

it was super good! my husband had 2 or 3 servings!!

I am excited to try this recipe!
I believe ghee is clarified butter, meaning it's had the milk protein removed from it. Supposedly it's easier to tolerate than regular butter. I've never tried it.

It sounds like a British recipe to me.
