Bacon-Onion-Jalapeño Puree with Pan-Seared Scallops
However, I'm not here to talk about scallops but actually a puree that you can make to accompany any scallop dish. It is a bacon-onion-roasted jalapeño puree that's just amazing with scallops. I know that some people may not like their food spicy, so you can leave out the jalapeños if you like.
Here are the ingredients that you'll need:
4 strips bacon
1 Vidalia onion (julienned)
2 red jalapeños (optional)
4 oz unsalted butter
1 cup water
Salt & pepper to taste
Now, you can add everything into a food processor and start blending them well, adding a little water to thin out th puree if it is too thick. Finally, taste and season with salt and pepper as needed. And it is done. It's not really that hard, is it? Now, you have a great-tasting puree to go with your scallop dish.
