Tender, sweet scallops and crisp bacon turn green beans into a chic little starter. I use smaller 'queenies' (scallops without coral), an affordable treat from the Fish Service Counter. You could use strips of smoked salmon or cooked tiger prawns in place of scallops and bacon.
This recipe can be prepared up to the end of step 3 several hours in advance. Cover with clingfilm and chill until ready to finish.
Ready-made short cut Waitrose Smoked Salmon Parcels, from the deli chiller cabinet, served with a mixture of Waitrose Marinated Sundried Tomatoes and halved fresh baby plum or cherry tomatoes. Garnish with a few chives.
