HOW TO PREPARE STEWED SCALLOPS WITH ROE SAUCE
Place the scallops in a slow cooker with some seasoning.
Cook on a low setting for 4 hours until almost cooked.
Remove after 4 hours and pat dry.
Heat the remaining melted butter in a large frying pan set over a moderate heat.
Pan-fry the scallops for 30 seconds on both sides.
Reheat the roe sauce in a small saucepan set over a low heat, stirring frequently.
Arrange rock salt on a serving platter in mounds.
Set the shells on the mounds of rock salt; pour the roe sauce into the shells then arrange three scallops in each shell.

Suggested variation: replace the roe sauce with a bacon garnish – grill 8 rashers of thin smokey bacon and set them on top of the scallops.
