Japanese Baked Scallops and Mushrooms in Apples Recipe

Serves/Makes: 4


  • 10 ounces scallops, rinsed and patted dry
  • 4 small red apples
  • 4 fresh shiitake mushrooms
  • 4 small Japanese green peppers or 1/2 green bell pepper
  • 1 teaspoon oil
  • Pinch of freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 2 tablespoons Japanese Mayonnaise (see below)
  • 2 tablespoons white miso
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated yuzu* or lemon rind
How to cook Japanese Baked Scallops and Mushrooms in Apples:
  • Cut 1/2 inch from the top of each apple and reserve as lids. Using a paring knife, carefully remove and discard the core. Then, use a melon bailer to hollow out each apple, leaving about 1/2 inch of flesh on the sides and about 1 1/2 inch at the bottom. Submerge the apples in ice water with a little salt to prevent them from discoloring.
  • Cut the scallops, mushrooms and peppers into small cubes. Heat the oil in a skillet and stir-fry until the scallops turn white. Season with pepper and place into a mixing bowl. Combine the mayonnaise and miso with the grated rind, then stir with the stir-fried scallops and vegetables to mix well.
  • Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C). Stuff each apple with equal portions of this filling. Bake the apples in the oven for 25 minutes.
  • Serve the Japanese Baked Scallops and Mushrooms in Apples hot with the lids on the side.
