Scallops are one of the star dishes of Christmas. They are delicious, thanks to their meat, they are perfect to prepare them on the grill in a moment, but what we want to teach you today is to cook them stuffed that are delicious and it is a perfect dish for this Christmas.


We clean the scallops by removing them from the shell and separating the fleshy part of the coral from the red part. We wash the shells well because it will be our letter of introduction.

In a griddle we put a drizzle of olive oil and brown the white part of the scallops for a minute on each side. Once ready, we place them in the center of each scallop.

We chop the onion, and we cut the prawns. (We reserve 6 prawns to decorate). We poach the onion and when it is transparent we add the prawns to cook. Add the tablespoon of flour and stir well. Add the fish stock little by little and continue stirring until it thickens. And we do the same with the milk until the bechamel forms.

We incorporate the corals of the scallops so that they are made at the last minute.

Now, we only have to fill the scallops with the béchamel mixture that we have prepared and sprinkle breadcrumbs on top. Decorate with a prawn and gratin in the oven for 3 minutes.
