    Scallop Pâté

    Had a whole bunch of scallop roe in the freezer, decided to try make something out of it. Turned out really well, would have taken a photo if my bloody phone would stop turning all my photos a horrid shade of purple.

    450g of scallop roe, washed and trimmed
    200g soft white fish cut into small pieces
    1/4 cup dry white wine
    1 cup cream
    1/2 ricotta
    1/8 cup finely minced chives
    Pinch of smoked paprika
    An egg
    Salt and white pepper to taste
    Small handful of finely chopped tarragon
    1 tbsp butter
    Juice of half a lemon plus zest

    Add the wine, cream, zest and tarragon to a pot and bring to a very gentle simmer, poach the roe and fish in this liquid until slightly firm
    Empty mixture into a blender along with the egg and ricotta and blitz until smooth, pass through a sieve if you desire a finer texture.
    Add your butter, lemon juice, salt and pepper, paprika and chives to your mixture and place over a double boiler, mix constantly until mixture tightens up, jar and let it cool completely before using.

    Sacrilege Angus. Rushy's recipe is clean scallop, eat scallop. Fast, efficient and yummy in the extreme.
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    My old man used to be able to do them on the bottom, fucken show off! In fact the bastard still beats me easily on air on scuba, obviously low cunning is relative to time served underwater, like it is on dry land.
