Seared Scallops And Wilted Greens And Chorizo






Ingredients 
Scallops for how ever many guests.
A bag of curly kale which will serve 4 nicely.
For 3 people I used 7 slices of chorizo diced.
Oil
Knob of unsalted butter.






Method 

Slice the kale into thin pieces and the leaves into larger strips. Heat a large, deep pan to medium-high.  Add the chorizo a cook 3-4 minutes.

Then add the onions( shallots would also work) and cook until soft for 3 more minutes.

Then the garlic or shallots  is added cook until softened for 3 minutes.


Cook another 4-5 minutes before adding the leaves. Toss until wilted over the heat. Add the soy sauce (if you want) then season , you might find it will be salty enough already , keep warm.

A fishmonger had already removed the foots off the scallop ( or is that feet!)

Next add the oil to the pan and swirl it around. When it starts to smoke, quickly add the scallops.  Cook on high for about 1-2 minutes.

Flip the scallops and add the butter.  Spoon the butter over the scallops as they cook another 1-2 minutes. Serve over warm greens.

  1. That looks delicious! Mind you I'd have kept the coral on the scallops, it's yummy. But for some reason it's not fashionable.

    1. As these were done by the fish monger in Ocado I'm not sure you can have that option , no harm in asking though.
      I know at Waitrose cookery school the coral was kept on and it was very tasty.
