    Simple pan-fried scallops

    Serves: 2 as a starter


    8 fresh king scallops, roe removed
    1 tbsp olive oil
    15g butter, cubed


    1. Toss the scallops in the oil and season.

    2.  Heat a frying pan over a very high heat. Add the scallops and hold them in position – this helps them keep contact with the pan and holds their shape. Fry for 2 minutes, then turn and fry for a further minute.

    3.  Add the butter. When it starts to foam, baste the scallops for a minute until golden.

    4.  Drain on kitchen paper and serve.
