I thought that after my successful experience with shrimp, scallops couldn't be too bad. There were only three real ingredients: bacon (the ultimate yummy food), scallops (gross), and water chestnuts (yuck). I hoped my love of bacon would out-weigh any grossness.
There it is. You can barely see the grossness lurking within....
So I ate that little sucker. And the water chestnut was still pretty gross. I don't know why, I know it doesn't really have a strong flavor. Maybe it's the watery-ness paired with the crunch that I find so unsettling.
But you know what wasn't so gross when it was wrapped up in the glory of bacon? Scallops. Maybe now I can try them on their own.
Or maybe I should just eat some bacon instead.
