Vietnamese Grilled Scallops with Cheese (So Diep Nuong Pho Mai)

I initial had this dish in Vietnam while eating out with family on my trip last yr. The little kids introduced me to cheese on grilled scallops. My original reaction was, “Grooooss!” Then I remembered I ate grilled silkworms and grilled mouse that this should be a stroll in the park.

And you know what? It was surprisingly scrumptious! I loooooved the savory and richness of the cheese, the wonderful aroma of the scallion oil (Mo Hanh), the light crunch of the toasted peanuts and fried pork unwanted fat (Tep Mo), and the outstanding sweet and spicy flavor of the holy mom sauce, Vietnamese sweet chili dipping sauce (Nuoc Mam Cham).

I manufactured this the other night at residence. It was so tasty that for a second I wished I was single so I didn’t have to share.

For the cheese spread, you should use the Authentic Laughing Cow Wedge Cheese, which is quite common in Vietnam. They are readily offered in all supermarkets here in the States. Any other cheese is not advisable.
