Capesante Gratinate - Scallop Gratin
Get the scallops out of the fridge. While you clean and wash them you are obviously just looking at the fish monger near the Gran Canal doing it for you, like in the video below.
Remove the mussels and rinse with cold water. Wash the shells thoroughly and pat dry. This is the time to pre-heat the oven and put the most romantic Italian music you have in your collection on. Puccini’s Nessun Dorma from Turandot is a never-fail classic. Mix all the remaining ingredients, place the scallops back in the shells and sprinkle with the bread crumbs mixture. Pour a little olive oil on each shell and bake in a preheated oven at 180 C° for 15 minutes. ...let the magic begin, you know how the recipe ends!
