Neptune Melts

So, was looking for a fast meal last night after a rather abortive fishing trip. Yes, we had fun, no, we didn’t catch much of anything, other than some nifty twigs and weeds. 

I think it was the lack of a nice, plump fish that led me to throw together something a little bit different for our supper last night. Turned out rather well, so I whipped out the camera and decided to share 🙂 Bear in mind I wasn’t planning on posting this so you’ll have to play around with actual quantities, haha.


some shrimp; peeled and cooked

some crab-flavoured Alaskan pollock (hey, if you have the real thing USE IT)

some scallops

some Texas Toast

some butter or margarine

some mayonnaise

some sour cream (keep this amount fairly small in relation to the mayo. I made six of these and used  maybe 2 tbsp of sour cream)

some Monterey Jack cheese, shredded

some garlic salt

dry mustard

some paprika

some freshly ground peppercorns

some tomatos; sliced

some green onions, coarsely chopped



Preheat the broiler.

First things first, you’re going to break up the pollock into bite-sized chunks. Add shrimp, scallops, green onion, mayonnaise, and sour cream. Mix gently and then add garlic salt, mustard, paprika and peppercorns. 

Place your Texas Toast on a  baking sheet and toast one side only under the broiler. Remove from oven and butter untoasted side lightly. Arrange tomato slices over the buttered bread and then cover with seafood mixture. Pop back in the oven and broil for a few minutes. Remove and smother with shredded cheese. Place BACK in the oven and broil until cheese is melted and bubbling. 

Remove and enjoy! I served this with a nice green salad. Both Spawn enjoyed their melts thoroughly. I had to add a little salt but other than that was fairly pleased with this as a last minute meal that didn’t involve pasta.

I’ve been putting pasta on the table waaaaaaaaaaay too frequently lately!
