  • 4 scallops
  • 2 parsley
  • 10 g butter
  • 30 ml white wine
  • 1/2 lemon, juiced

Step 1: Prepare the Scallops

Take your fresh scallops, removing the sinew and the roe. Add some olive oil to a pan and heat until pan is very hot. The pan needs to be hot to really sear the scallops rather than just cook them.

Step 2: Pan Fry the Scallops

Season the scallops on each side with pepper and salt. Add the scallops to a pan, they should begin to sizzle from the start. Allow to sear on one side then turn and sear on the other side. Then add 20-30ml of white wine, some lemon juice, 10g of butter and 2 tbsp parsley.

Step 3: Plate the Scallops

Add the scallops to a plate. Allow the sauce to reduce for another minute or so and then pour over the scallops. Serve.
