Surf & Surf. (With Bacon)



Flounder & Scallops wrapped in Bacon sounds almost as Awesome as it tastes.

Last time I had Flounder was when I opened this 3 pound pack, and ate the first half.
These are the Thinnest Flounder Fillets I’ve ever seen.

So this time I’ll make the other half, but in the Frying Pan, with just some Northwoods Seasoning—No breading.
These skinny fillets were much better this way, and adding the Scallops wrapped in Bacon was a real added Bonus!

And that last Pic is just Mrs Bear’s second batch of “Meltaways”, mostly to give away.


Thanks for Stopping By!

Bear

Nice looking plate looks like enough to share and you didn't call me. DANG
Some times I just put paprika on filets for a great flavor as you did the Northwoods seasoning.

Thank You Ryan!!
Yup--I haven't seen anyone "not like" them. A couple changed it to Dark Chocolate, but nobody actually disliked them.
And Thanks for the Like.

Yup, I especially like doing thin fillets this way, because they get done so fast.

When I have big thick fillets, I like to bread them & AirFry them, so the inside gets done before the outside get too well done.
