Simple Scallops

Simple, quick and tasty - it only takes about 5 minutes. Scallops may seem a little posh, but this far from the sea there are few alternatives to cod available - bizarrely this seems to be one of them. They are, however, fantastically easy to cook, so treat yourself.


butter and oil
root ginger, finely chopped
lemongrass, finely chopped (optional)
coriander, finely chopped
white wine
lime juice


  1. Heat the butter in a frying pan with a little oil (this stops the butter burning).
  2. Fry the scallops for a couple of minutes on each side then remove.
  3. Fry the ginger and lemongrass in the same pan for about 30 seconds then add the wine and lime juice. Finally add the chopped coriander.
  4. Pour this sauce over the scallops. The sauce will be very sharp to taste, so you may want to just remove the scallops from the sauce to serve.
