  • Yield: 4 Servings
  • Cooking Time: 15 Minutes


How to Make It
  1. Heat a frying pan and add the bacon. Cook over medium heat until the bacon is brown and frazzled. Lift on to a plate.
  2. Remove the roe from the scallops, if present. Fry the scallops in the bacon fat for 1–2 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Do not put too many in the pan at once, because they will not brown. Lift onto a plate.
  3. Reduce the heat in the pan and fry the roes, if using; these are likely to pop in the hot fat. They are cooked when they are firm.
  4. Return the scallop muscles and bacon to the pan and add the parsley and the lemon juice. Season, and serve with arugula leaves.
