...from Kangaroo Island, bought fresh from the Farmer's Market. Scallop season seems to be very short, so it is a good idea to get your fill while they are in season. Well, okay, we are talking local scallops.

Anyway, we watched the guy at the stall open the scallops, tasted one fresh from the oven (oh oh ohhhhhh) and bought a good lot.

Opening them at home was a lot more time-consuming and messy than anticipated. (Never think something is easy, when watching an expert!) But it was good fun and we got there.

We did encounter 2 of these little crabs. How weird is that?! Spot the crab!
Then each scallop received a dollop of butter, finely chopped garlic and parsley. Then about 3 minutes under the grill and then a squirt of fresh lemon juice. Eat with freshly baked, crusty bread. Mop shells with bread. Enjoy!
