Baked Cheesy Scallop

These are cheesy and deliciously good. Will you just eat one or two ??NOOOOO, definitely not! You will eat more than that. This is so good that my kids just can’t help but rave about it. In the interest of keeping this recipe simple, I kept the ingredient list is rather short. =)

Ingredients

  • 1 pack of frozen half shelled scallop (thawed, washed and pat dry) 16 pcs
  • salted butter
  • 250g grated cheddar cheese
  • 100g grated mozzarella
  • dried parsley

Method

  • Preheat the oven at 170 degree celsius
  • Place a small slice of salted butter on the scallop
  • Top with grated cheese
  • Sprinkle on some dried parsley
  • Bake for 15 minutes. Remember not to overcook it. Use your own judgement as each oven works differently, so do the size of the scallop.

The scallop has three parts which are edible, the white fleshy muscle, the roe and the frilly membrane. It is up to you if you want to remove the other parts and leave only the white fleshy muscle. As for me I like to include all of it because each has different textures, giving a different mouth feel with each and every bite 🙂

Keto-Friendly Basque Burnt Lemon Cheesecake

This version of a cheesecake is keto-friendly! Its recipe is a slight variation of my gluten free cheesecake. I personally love cheesecake but I have to watch my diet as it is pretty high in calories. Thus I made this cake with no carbohydrates added to reduce my overall calorie intake. Now I can enjoy cheesecake whenever I want without feeling too guilty about it!

Ingredients

  • 500g cream cheese (room temperature)
  • 200g stevia sugar (reduce if you want less sweet)
  • 340g eggs
  • 265g whipping cream
  • 10g lemon Juice
  • 1 lemon zest
  • 80g almond flour (sifted )

Pan – 20 cm – lined with baking paper.

Method

  • Preheat your oven at 190 degree celsius
  • Using a paddle whisk attachment on your mixer, beat the sugar and cream cheese at medium speed until creamy.
  • Add the eggs in 3 batches. Ensuring the eggs are well combined with the mixture before adding the next batch. Mix at medium low speed
  • Add in the whipping cream, followed by the lemon juice and zest. Whip at medium low speed until all are well combined.
  • Add in the flour, whip until all are combined at low speed for about a minutes.
  • Pour the batter into your pan. Tap the pan for 3x on the table, to remove some big air bubbles.
  • Bake for 40 minutes, then turn up temperature to 210 degree celsius. Bake for another 15 minutes or until the top turns brown.
  • Leave the cake inside the oven for 1 hour.
  • Let it completely cool down before slicing.
