Appetizing Green Peas Dip and Scallops Pinterest

Appetizing Green Peas Dip and Scallops! Creamy green peas puree with scallops or shrimps, topped with salmon caviar and bacon chips, a very flavorful appetizer or cocktail food ready in no time!

I used frozen peas, I like them better than canned, plus the color is sharper.

This appetizer is served at room temperature, therefore can be prepared in advance.

The recipe is for 6 persons, counting 2 glasses per person. The glasses are tiny and contain 1/4 cup of dip only.

Since this is a rich appetizer with the heavy cream and seafood, I would not offer more than 2 cups and serve assorted appetizers, particularly if you’re following with a complete dinner.

P.S.: Forgot to add the little spoons on the picture….

  • 6 servings
  • Easy
  • 1 h 00

Recipe :

Ingredients:

6 shrimps

6 scallops

13.2 oz. (375 g.) green peas, fresh or frozen

Salt and pepper to taste

1 tsp. basil, thinly chopped

1/2 cup (120 ml) heavy cream

12 bacon strips

1 oz. (30 g.) salmon or lumpfish roe

Fry the seafood and bacon:

Into a pan, heat some olive oil and sear briefly the scallops and shrimps and set aside

Sear the bacon strips, remove from oil and set aside

Cook the green peas:

Into a saucepan, bring about 32 oz. water to boil, add some salt, add the green peas and cook for about 5 to 7 minutes or until the peas are soft

Drain the peas and add them to the bowl of a food processor, puree finely, then pass through a strainer so to obtain a smooth puree and to gather all the skins

Drizzle the heavy cream into the puree while whisking it vigorously, give it some air

Taste it and add the basil, salt and pepper according to taste

Assembly:

Pour the puree into tiny glasses or cups, trim the bacon with scissors and distribute a few chips on top of puree together with a few salmon eggs

Spear the scallops and shrimps with toothpicks or decorative skewers and lay them on top of glasses

Enjoy!

YOu really can't go wrong with shellfish and peas. I totally agree about it o referring frozen (or even better- fresh) sweet peas.

Sure fresh must be better, but frozen = no prep Thanks Katie!

It looks quite interesting. I think I would pass on the scallops version and dig right into the one with shrimp. Yum!

This would be a perfect fancy appetizer for our Oscar Night party! Pour the bubbly and pass these beautiful shots. Seafood is always a treat for us. What size are you using for the shrimps and scallops?

Thanks so much Lisa, these are tiny glasses that only contain a 1/4 cup of dip so I use rather small scallops and shrimps so they can fit into the glasses

I love how this appetizer is presented! The green pea puree is such a pretty, vibrant color, and it must pair so beautifully with the shrimp and scallops. Love the salmon roe garnish as well! What a great appetizer for a special occasion.
