Seafood Melody

Seafood Melody is our this Saturday weekend dinner theme. We have Baked Scallop on shell with Cheese, Seaweed Onigiri wrapped with fish floss, Octopus & Crab shapes mini sausage and lastly serve with prunes wedges which is in season. At 1st my aim was to make some Fish Shapes Onigiri with my fish mould but too bad the shape doesn't come out nicely so I had to change it to normal triangle shape. As you can see, I added some stir-fry Broccoli among the octopus and crabs to act as seaweeds for them to rest on.

I made these cute little Octopus and Crabs to enhance the sea creatures theme.(which is not really look like crab but more like kitty according to Reyon and one of my blog pal hahaha....). Reyon and I really enjoys ourself on making these cute little creatures, we decorate the eyes and noses with black and white sesame seeds which creates different kinds of facial expression.

I found these frozen scallops on shell at one of the local supermarket upon a friend's recommend. It's really worth to spend that amount for these nice and juicy scallop which I baked it with some easy ingredients in the pantry.

Ingredients: (serves 1)
3 Scallops on Shell
Some Japanese Mayonnaise
Some Chopped Spring Onion
Some Chopped Chilli
Some Shredded Cheese

1. Defrost the scallops completely, rinse well and pad it dry with some kitchen paper towel.
2. Place about 1 teaspoon of mayonnaise cream on the centre of the scallop, sprinkle some chopped onion and chillie.
3. Top with some shredded cheese and grill for 3 - 5 minutes until it is cook through depending on the size of the scallop.
4. You can added some extra cheese after 2 minutes or so for extra cheesy taste.

1. If you do not have any Japanese Mayonnaise, you can use any type of mayonnaise or thousand island.
2. If this is serve for kids, you can omit the cut chillies.
3. You can replace the chopped spring onion with chopped brown onion.
4. Use any type of cheese that you can find in your fridge, for this I used Mozzarella Cheese.

For the rice dish, I used the Seaweeds flakes and Black Sesame seeds to combine with the cooked rice then use the triangle Onigiri mould to shape it. I also add some fish floss filling in it to enhance its favour.

During the meal, Reyon and I saw some interesting poses which we think we would like to share with you. First, we spot the little Octopus sitting on top of the reef waiting to be eaten....... :p Next we have two Octopus on guard, guarding one of the Pyramid. Lastly while eating half way through the scallops, Reyon was saying that the crab had almost dropped into the red lava (i put some chilli sauce on the scallop shell as dipping sauce)... it is crawling at the side of the volcano...... hahaha....
