Scallop Rillettes

Pate of the sea.

I’ve never really tasted anything like this. I hadn’t even heard of the Ile de Groix, the island off the coast of Brittany where scallop rilletes are made, until last summer. Nor had I heard of scallop rillettes. As far as I knew, rillettes, slow-cooked in fat like a pâté, were reserved for land animals.
 
These are similar to pâté, but instead of using pork or duck to make a rich spread, scallops are employed to make a rillette that is light and smooth, with just a touch of sweetness and an undeniable flavor of the sea. The additions are parsley, shallots and a bit of butter and cream.
 
Spread some on open faced sandwiches for lunch or a dinner side dish, perhaps with a few capers, lemon zest and a twist of black pepper. Outstanding fast food. Keep a couple jars in the cabinet for late night snacking or to satisfy impromptu guests.
