I adore scallops but don’t often make them at home. Not sure why since they are extremely easy to cook, delicious and look very impressive if you serve them on their own shells (I like a food that provides its own serving plate).
The Lurpak Cooking Liquid is perfect for cooking fast and at high heat – these scallops can go from pan to dinner table in a matter of minutes. The clarified butter makes a delicious dressing equally quickly and it tastes amazing – prepare to mop up any juices with bread and lick your fingers surreptitiously afterwards!
Don’t throw the shells away after you finish with the scallops. Wash and keep them for serving canapés or use them in the garden as decorative mulching.
