wave Hi, I'm on the recipe hunt again!

Cannot find the recipe for scallops.  Toffeeapple posted one, I have searched but still can't find it, can you help please?

I shall ask toffeeapple, however I must go now I'm afraid, with much regret, hope to 'catch up' later.

I didn't use a recipe, but this is what I did -

Heat a little butter in a pan on medium heat, when hot put the scallops in and leave for about two minutes - do not move them about.  Turn after two minutes. Serve on spaghetti that was tossed with Carluccio's lemon olive oil, to which has been added tiny halved tomatoes and torn Prosciutto. 

I'll try that again!

Scallops with black pudding, fab combination.  Scallops with chorizo, oh yeah.  There used to be a restauranty kind of thing where you'd stack discs of black pudding, scallop and caramelised apple rings - I actually prefer it without the apple, although the three different flavour/texture/appearance thing adds a great "wow" factor on the plate if you're showing off.

I can't improve on Toffeeapple's method of cooking, (you could grill them too, btw), but they do love a bit of garlic in there somewhere.  And if the scallops are really fat, you can cut them (horizontally) in two, or even three - which makes them go further and cooks them in seconds.

I'll second the scallops with black pudding idea " I've had that in a restaurant it was great. I've also had scallops wrapped in some kind of bacon or pancetta.

I don't have a recipe handy but I've cooked them with a saffron cream sauce, served them with pasta, and drizzled with some basil oil, or with a bit of pesto.

I lovelovelove scallops and black pudding. On a thick bit of rustic loaf toast, with some nice salad and chopped sundried tomatoes. Love the idea of adding chorizo too.

Chorizo is the  most flavourful thing I have ever eaten, I think.  Love the stuff and the pretty colour it makes in the pan.

I'll try that again!

Keeping everything crossed Odelle, that the car is OK  and the heating keeps going.  Have you hot-water bottles?  I can't live without my two.

I'll try that again!

Oh thankyou so much, always thoughtful as ever.  I've got hot water bottle on my back, a hot cuppa here beside me, fleece blanket wrapped around me, rather like 'mitchelin man', as long as I get warmed through, that's the main thing, I've another bottle in bed nice & hot to take the chill out.
 

Every thing seems damp when it's got very cold, or it's my imagination, probably both!

Thanks also, being with me on the M.O.T. on the car tomorrow, I've got everything crossed that it's not going to be too costly.

Much appreciated, Odelle. aargh wave

I agree with you about everything feeling damp, horrid feeling.  Take two hotties to bed, one at your back and one at your toes and the covers over your head.  Ginger tea helps too.  

I'll try that again!

I shall take your advice gratefully, thankyou, I'm off to venture in to the kitchen to make some ginger tea, see, I hadn't even thought of that!
 

I'm full of good intentions to place my order for seeds now, well when I get my ginger tea!

That'll do the trick! magic welldone wave

Oh thank you, bad news I'm afraid, lots to do to make it fit for the road......Argh! aargh

Big hug, much appreciated, hey it's much warmer today, great, the house is probably sighing with relief along with me.....smile.

Now then, what to cook for evening meal tonight?

Just added my bit to the Channel 4 website regarding the cruelty of fishing, this is what happens when the local fishmongers are 'chased' out of the High Street by high rental and supermarkets.  Well done to every one concerned for bringing the problem in to our homes, I just hope that consumers do their bit though also.

Support your local suppliers or we'll loose them all eventually, which I know that you adopt the same principals as I do myself as do lots of people on here do thankfully.
