Scallops with Green Salsa
Recipe Commitment: Easy
This is a simple and vibrant dish that is sophisticated and full of flavour!
Ingredients (serves 2 for a light lunch!):
10 fresh scallops
2 tsp olive oil
300gm of mixed cherry tomatoes (preferably half green and half red, but nay colours will do)
3 spring onions
1/2 green chilli
2 tsp coriander
2 tsp mint
2 tbs red wine vinegar
2 tbs olive oil
1 tsp salt
1. Finely chop the chilli, spring onions, shallots, mint and coriander. Combine all the Salsa ingredients into a large bowl and rest for 15 minutes.
2. After 15 minutes add these ingredients into a blender and blend until you have your desired texture. Mine was smooth however you can make it more chunky by blending for a shorter time.
3.Combine scallops, oil and salt to a bowl and allow to rest for 5 minutes. Let your butter soften while your scallops rest.
4. Combine butter, oil and lemon juice in a bowl for later. Heat a large frying pan on high until very hot. Add the scallops and cook for 1-2 minutes on each side. Finally, drizzle the butter-lemon mixture on the scallops and cook in the juices for another minute, tossing the scallops.
5. Remove the scallops rom the heat and rest on a paper towel as the scallops will release water. Serve the scallops hot on a bed of salsa! Enjoy!
