This BLT Does the Unthinkable, Swaps Bread for Juicy, Seared Scallop

blt-scallop

Don’t get me wrong, I love bread.  I think bread is one of the greatest foods ever (besides bacon,of course).  When I was little, I would tell my parents that if I ever went to jail, and was given one thing to eat, I would be very happy if it was warm sourdough bread with salted butter.  Apparently I was both very morbid and optimistic.

But there’s nothing wrong with a little imagination, especially when it leads to a sandwich with scallops for bread.  You’ve got all the bacon-y goodness of a BLT, crisp lettuce and tomato, maybe some aioli, placed in a perfect bite between two thick juicy scallops.  Finally, it’s a delicious way to serve BLT’s as hors d’oeuvres, make use of fresh summer seafood, and even have some portion control.  As for me, I’ll be eating these with a side of warm sourdough bread and butter outside and absolutely not in jail.  You can find a link to the recipe at Bite-Sized, as well as some mouthwatering photos.

Pig’s feet, frog’s legs, and tripe are delicious child’s play. Which isn’t to say she doesn’t love a great steak. Because she does. With frites, please.
