Open and clean the scallops. Prepare a gratin following our basic recipe. Place the scallop in one of its shells and cover with the gratin mixture. Do the same with all the other shells. Arrange in a baking dish and put a knob of butter on each. Bake at 180 °C for 15-20 minutes.

To add yet more flavour to your scallops you can soak them briefly in cognac.
Scallops are very delicate and refined, like oysters, and offer all the enjoyment we expect from unusual flavours.
