Now I don’t know about you. But I’m definitely more of a baker than a cook. I’m not sure why, but I feel more comfortable baking a batch of cupcakes or cookies. Than cooking a casserole or a curry. I think it has something to do with the oven, and trying to get the timings correct. Whatever it is. It’s fair to say that I rely on the microwave rather than the oven to cook the majority of my meals. But microwave doesn’t have to mean boring. In fact it can now mean Michelin inspired.
I know what your thinking. But trust me on this. I made this baked scallop starter in the microwave. I know. The microwave! And it was a lot easier than I thought it would be. Plus it was a lot tastier than I thought it would be too. All you need is a combination microwave. A good recipe. A little creativity. And the possibilities are endless.
Now I wouldn’t normally bake scallops like this. Or at all really. it’s definitely one of those types of food that I’d order in a restaurant rather than make myself. Mainly because I would have no idea how to cook them. But this baked scallop recipe is so simple. I would make a great starter for a dinner party. Or you could add potatoes and more veg for a hearty dinner. I’m honestly so inspired and motivated by how easy this was that already I’m planning on what to make next week in the microwave.
So if you fancy trying the recipe yourself, here is the video that shows you just how easy it is to cooked baked scallops in a shell. Or you can visit the website for the full list of ingredients and cooking instructions.
