Cheesy Baked Scallops

Cheesy Baked Scallops baked with garlic, butter, and two kinds of cheese. Yum!

Cheesy Baked Scallops

I now have a new favorite grocery destination.

Last weekend, our feet took us to Fishermall just because we were craving for Mister Kabab where I learned to order the Shawarma Plate instead of the Special Beef Chelo Kabab (I’m holding off on the rice and butter, people!).  It was the perfect place because (a.) there’s a Mister Kabab restaurant there and (b.) there’s a supermarket — my favorite place of all time.

You know what I found out about their supermarket? It has lots of fresh seafood I don’t usually find in other supermarkets! (It’s Fishermall, duh.) There are baby octopus and fresh scallops, among others. You know how Grilled or Baked Scallops can get really expensive when you order it in restaurants, right? Six to nine pieces will cost you around ₱400.

A kilo of fresh scallops there is only ₱280!

The problem was, since it was my first time cooking fresh scallops, I didn’t know how to clean it. When you buy frozen scallops, all you get is the medallion-like meat, right?

Googling it told me that those orange sacks are roe and that what I should remove are the black sack and all the other membranes.

Removing all those nasty stuff made room for garlicky butter and two kinds of cheese! Oh, the weekend was indeed an indulgence.

Meanwhile, it’s so haaaard to adjust my eating habits!!! I’m trying my best to do portion control and to keep away from high sugar and high carb food for the mean time. It’s just so difficult when I’m out. Yesterday, I attended the launch of Mustela Maternite, a complete range of skin care products for pregnant moms and new moms! (which I’m gonna tell you all about at www.mommypeach.com, soon.). I had this Vegetarian Soba Pasta at Le Petit Souffle that tastes sooooo good, I wanna replicate it!

peanutbutter had the Smoked Ham Cubano from Mister Delicious and a bottle of Joe’s Brew from Smoky Bastard. He only had half of it and half to take home because the sandwich was big enough for two servings.

And today, guess what I prepared for lunch? We had Steak with Chimichurri Sauce and Mac N’ Cheese on the side!

Ykaie and peanutbutter was so pleased with lunch! We finished a big chunk of porterhouse and t-bone! I’ll be sharing with you the recipe soon….

Cheesy Baked Scallops

Back to these two-cheese Baked Scallops.. these are super cheesy since it had monterey jack and parmesan. Ykaie loved it so much she wanted another kilo of scallops. I found it a bit dry, though. I’ll have a makeover of this recipe, perhaps put a bit of mayonnaise or some bechamel.

Baked Scallops again next weekend? Ykaie would be very happy.

  1. Scallops are really expensive in the restaurant so I don’t always order this. I haven’t seen scallops pa in the supermarket and even wet market.

      1. How i wish i could upload a picture of what i cooked using your recipe.. thanks for this

  2. This recipe looks incredibly good. My best friend loves seafood so I hope to make it for her.

  3. I tried scallops for the first time a few months back and they were delicious. I am always worried about cleaning/shucking them because of the amount of work. However, this recipe looks so delicious I might just try it.

  4. Those scallops looks so good I want to grab them from the screen and eat them.

  5. Wow! Can I grab a bit please? I’m so hungry already and this popped up on screen! lol! I’m just trying to finish my commex and I’m off to the kitchen! haha.

  6. The Cheesy Baked Scallops look amazing. I’d be scared I would mess them up, but maybe I’ll be a risk taker and give them a try.

  7. Reading your post made me realized I haven’t really seen scallops in their shell. Who would have known they look like that? I’m used to seeing just the medallions – not much fuss before I cook them. Now that vegetarian soba is making me drool.

  8. Wow! I have never had scallops before but I would love to try your recipe! The cheese really brings me in.

  9. I liked this “lampirong” – scallops ever since i was a kid. I cooked it naturally – stir-fried and it’s really delicious with white rice. For sure, this weekend, I’ll try to find in the market.

  10. I haven’t tried this yet but I’ll give it a shot whenever there are scallops available in the market. It is rarely available here in our place but whenever it is available, it gets sold quickly! But I’ll see to it that I can buy this time and will definitely give this a try.

  11. Your Cheesy Baked Scallops look delicious. My husband makes scallops about once a month so I’ll have to give him this recipe so we can try them.

  12. Wow, they look yummy and esp those scallops! You saved dishes there as the shells served as their dish. 🙂

    I haven’t eaten scallop yet. I am not sure if I can actually eat one for fear of any seafood allergies.

  13. Scallops with anything are one of my fave seafood dishes. This looks amazing, I have to try it.

  15. Wowowowwwwee! They look so good that I just want to go to the kitchen and grab something to eat as the photos makes me hungry. I love to cooking and will definitely try the scallop recipe one day, minus the cleaning part eehehhe!

  16. Tbh, I don’t know if I’ve already tasted scallops before. haha. Maybe I have, I either just don’t remember or don’t know the name. Plus, I learned that it’s expensive too, so that’s another reason. haha. Your recipe looks really yummy!
