    Caramelised Scallops with Lemon Grass Butter

    Serves: 2

    Ingredients

    • 40g butter
    • 2 finely sliced stalks lemon grass
    • 1 tsp olive oil
    • 6 scallops
    • A squeeze of lemon juice
    • Steamed broccoli, to serve

    Method

    1. For a decadent starter, melt 40g butter over a low heat in a small pan and add 2 finely sliced stalks lemon grass. Leave to infuse over a very gentle heat (you don't want the lemon grass to fry).
    2. Meanwhile, heat another frying pan until very hot, add 1 tsp olive oil and some seasoning. Add 6 scallops, smooth sides down. Cook for 2 minutes, pressing down so they caramelise evenly. Turn, and cook for 2 minutes more.
    3. Add a squeeze of lemon juice then serve with the lemon grass butter and steamed broccoli.
