8 Hand-Dived Scallops 

50g (cooking) chorizo, chopped

50g shallot, chopped

100g sugar

250g apple juice

50g parmesan, finely grated

  1. Clean and prepare the Scallops. Rinse the scallops under cold running water several times. Pat them dry with a paper towel to remove any excess moisture.

  2. To make the Chorizo Jam, add the oil, chorizo, onion and apple to the pan on a medium heat. Cook for a few minutes.

  3. Add the sugar and apple juice to the pan and reduce until you get a jam consistency.

  4. To make the avocado purée, blend an avocado until smooth, about 30 - 40 seconds.

  5. Grate the parmesan onto a baking sheet and microwave for 30 seconds.

  6. Oil the scallops and season to taste.

  7. Cook scallops until golden, approximately 1-2 minutes per side.

  8. Serve in half scallop shells with avocado puree and chorizo jam, and parmesan crisp.

Serves 2 people as a main course with a side or 3 people as a starter.
