  • Serves35
  • DifficultyMedium
1 pound wet sea scallops, muscle removed, rinsed and patted dry
2 egg whites
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon white pepper
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon lemon zest
1/2 teaspoon chopped fresh parsley leaves
1/4 cup heavy cream, very cold
35 to 40 mini phyllo shells
1) Preheat the oven to 180C/Gas 4.

2) Place the scallops into the bowl of a food processor and pulse four to five times. Add the egg whites and pulse until combined. Scrape down the sides of the bowl and add the salt, pepper, nutmeg, lemon zest and parsley. Pulse to incorporate. With the machine running, slowly add all of the cream. Scrape down the sides of the bowl one last time, put the lid back on and run for 5 more seconds.

3) Place the mousse into a pastry bag or a zip-top bag with the tip snipped off and pipe into mini filo shells. Bake for 10 minutes. Allow to cool for 2 to 3 minutes before serving.
