Recipe: Conchitas a la Parmesana. Parmesan Sea Scallops.

This is a traditional appetizer from Peru. You will find this in almost every restaurant. Simple and quick, besides having fresh ingredients, the secret is in broiling the right amount of time.  In Peru, they serve the scallop with the “coral”, the red part of the meat. The part, most people like to eat is the “scallop” itself. The coral has a bitter taste. I haven’t located a store that sells the scallop with the coral.
