Recipe: Manx Queenies and Stilton

cookThe Manx Queenie, or Queen Scallop, is one of the delicacies that one can savour on the Isle of Man. And once a year, the Isle of Man Queenie Fesitval is held to celebrate this delicate and savoury morsel that can be prepared in a variety of ways. Here’s one recipe that they have offered us to add to ManxVoice:


  • 454g Manx Queenies
  • 100g Stilton
  • 250ml Double Cream
  • 100ml White Wine
  • Salt and Pepper
  • Vegetable Oil for Cooking


  1. Place a frying pan on a high heat and add small amount of oil.
  2. Add Manx Queenies to the pan and cook quickly for 2-3mins.
  3. Place Manx Queenies in a dish , then place pan back on heat and add white wine.
  4. Reduce wine by half, add cream and bring to the boil.
  5. Reduce heat and crumble in stilton. Do not re-boil as it will split.
  6. Return Manx Queenies to the pan allow to heat back through, season to taste.
  7. Serve in a dish with crusty bread and salad.

That sounds really yummy, and you’re all welcome to try it. And, if you have a Queenie recipe you’re proud of, you can submit it to their Queenie Recipe competition for a chance to £100 worth of seafood.

The Queenie Festival starts on the 29th June this year. We’ll bring you more details closer to the event.
