Scallops with Chilli, Garlic and Lemon

image

Scallops are classed as a treat in our house. These were cooked in a pan but they work well on the barbecue too.

I make the flavoured oil up in advance and let it sit, this allows the oil to have a bit of kick before the scallops go in for a quick marinade. I tend to buy them with the roe off as that’s what our local fishmonger has!

Serves 4.

Ingredients

500g scallops

1 clove garlic, crushed

1 red chilli, finely diced

zest of 1 lemon

2 tablespoons olive oil

Method

In a bowl, combine the garlic, chilli, zest and oil, set aside for at least an hour.

Marinade the scallops in the oil mix for 20mins.

Heat a large, non stick frying pan very high heat.

Once very hot, tip the scallops in.

Cook until golden, turn and repeat.

  1. I don’t live to a fishmonger, so rely on the supermarket which is a bit ;meh’ for the price you pay. Lovely recipe, thanks for sharing.

  2. I love scallops, and they’re such a great source of iron too! I’m always anemic, and I don’t like supplements, so scallops are not just tasty, but also a great addition to my diet. Can’t wait to try your recipe! ๐Ÿ™‚
