About this recipe: This posh nosh is ideal for a special occasion. Tender, fresh king scallops are pan fried to perfection then covered with a light, lemon cream sauce. This dish will impress your friends. Serve the sauce on the side if you want to ensure that the flavour of the scallops is solo on centre stage.
The Rolls Royce of the shellfish world and a little tricky to cook perfectly. A perfectly cooked scallop will have a smooth almost buttery texture. When searing/pan frying go for a lovely golden brown exterior on both the top and the bottom and white around the sides. When you cut into a perfectly cooked scallop the inside will be evenly white, warmed through, and deliciously juicy. I always buy 1 extra scallop as my "test case" which I can cut into to check (and taste test). I always remove from the pan slightly under cooked giving them time to complete cooking gently while resting for a few minutes.
