Ingredients

1 Puff Pastry Sheet, thawed

1 egg

1 tablespoon heavy cream

1/2 cup Bacon Jam, at room temperature

8 large scallops

fine sea salt & freshly ground pepper

1 tablespoon butter

1 tablespoon scallions, chopped for garnish

Maldon Sea Salt, for garnish (optional)


Instructions

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Unroll Puff Pastry Sheet and cut into 16 equal size squares. Place 1 inch apart on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet.

In a small bowl, whisk together egg and heavy cream. Baste lightly on each Puff Pastry square.

Bake for 13-15 minutes or until Puff Pastry is light brown. Remove from oven and using the back of a spoon, create a well in each square. Set aside.

Clean scallops and dab dry with a paper towel. Liberally season with fine sea salt and freshly ground pepper.

Heat a frying pan over medium-high heat until nearly smoking. Add butter.

As soon as the butter has melted, add scallops. Sear on each side for 2-3 minutes or until lightly brown.

Remove scallops and cut in half horizontally.

Equally divide Bacon Jam between each Puff Pastry square. Top with a half scallop, chopped scallions, and a light sprinkle of Maldon sea salt.

Serve hot and enjoy!
