   12                    Tiny pastry cases (about
                         -3cm across)
   12       md           Scallops
    2                    Cloves garlic
    5       oz           Full fat cream cheese
                         The juice of half a lemon
                         Oil for frying
                         Caviar to decorate.
 
   Separate the corals of the scallops from the bodies.
   Chop the garlic and fry it in a little oil until done,
   but not browned. Add the scallop corals briefly until
   just cooked. Blend contents of the pan with the cream
   cheese, preferably in a blender, until it is very
   smooth. Season and add in some of the lemon juice to
   taste.
   
   Place a little of the cheese mixture into each pastry
   case.
   
   Slice each scollop into two or three disks about 0.5
   cm thick, and marinade them for anout 10 mins in the
   lemon juice. Lightly fry the scallops, lay on the
   pastry cases, and decorate with caviar.
   
   Serve immediately.
   
   This is absolutely delicious - makes a nice light
   starter or an amuse-bouche for a longer meal.
