OK. A favor done is about to be repaid with a buncha "in shell" scallops". I intend to start the meal with raw slices, splashed with lime juice, and roe from those that have them. I'm just wonderin' what you guys'd do with a few dozen uber fresh scallops. I need no advice about cleanin' 'em, and I should note that I will deep fry a couple for the final plate. I know about on the other, recent scallop threads, but these are a bit different than defrosting the protein you can get at Costco. Anyone got some kick a*s ideas of what might push the boundaries with these beauties? Any funky additions of flavor? Raw ginger slices? Wasabi? Challenge me? I've got a coupla habaneros around, though the Ghost Peppers are gone . . . .
Should I just stick with raw/ceviche preps 'til I give in to my inner "fry fanatic"?
