Scallop Roses

This is my award winning recipe from Quick Scallop Recipe Contest held in Hokkaido on 11/4.

10 winners were selected out of 372 entries nationwide.

My recipe is real easy. It just requires 3 minutes to prepare! Very cute and gorgeous idea for your party appetizer!

Scallop Roses

Difficulty: Very Easy
Time: 3min
Number of servings: 4 pieces

4 jumbo sea scallops
12 thinly sliced prosciutto
Taberu La-Yu (Edible La-Yu)

1. Wrap each scallop with 3 slices of prosciutto, like a rose.
2. Top scallops with Taberu La-Yu.

My original recipe in Japanese is here.

As I wrote before, Taberu La-Yu stormed Japan in 2010!!! Sorry if it is not available around you, but this item is really tasty and versatile. Must try out!!!

See you again :D

Oh all those presents aren't for me but for my boyfriends family! lol I just didn't have time to give it to them yet =P I hope you get a tree next year! It really brings some Christmas spirit into the home~
