Scallop, coriander and lime canapés

6
10 minutes

Ingredients

  • 6 scallops, removed from their shells and cleaned (shells cleaned and reserved for serving)
  • 1 lime, juiced and zested
  • 45ml of olive oil, plus extra to cook the scallops
  • 1/2 red chilli, deseeded and very finely chopped
  • 1 handful of chopped coriander
  • salt
  • pepper

Method

1
Begin by making the dressing. Place the lime juice into a bowl and slowly drizzle in the oil whilst whisking to emulsify
2
Add the finely chopped chilli and coriander then season with salt and pepper to taste
3
Season the scallops with salt presentation-side up. Place a non-stick frying pan over a high heat and add a drizzle of olive oil. Place the scallops in the pan presentation-side down
4
Leave to cook undisturbed for around 2–3 minutes until a nice golden crust forms, then flip over and cook for a final minute. The scallops should feel springy to the touch when ready
5
Place the scallops back in their clean shells and spoon over some of the lime dressing. Sprinkle over the lime zest and serve
