    Seared scallops are served with a spicy fresh pineapple, mango, cucumber and red pepper salsa. Simple, colourful and delicious. Be sure to use fresh king scallops which are large and plump, and take care not to overcook them; they should remain tender and moist.

    Ceviche is popular throughout Latin America and this prawn and scallop version is the perfect make-ahead starter. While Peru is most famous for its ceviche, there are variations of the recipe throughout Latin America, and this is one of them!

    These golden mini choux puffs are filled with mussels and scallops in a saffron and chive sauce. Both the puffs and filling can be prepared earlier in the day and reheated just before serving.
