Scallops and chorizo

Scallops and chorizo

The combination of spicy chorizo and chilli with creamy scallops and a touch of honey gives this easy starter a sensational flavour.


  • 3 fresh chorizo sausages, sliced into rounds the thickness of a pound coin

  • 4 spring onions, trimmed and sliced

  • 2 red chillies, thickly sliced

  • 24 scallops, cleaned (with 6 shells reserved and cleaned if you can get them)

  • 2 tbsp runny honey

Preparation method

  1. Heat a heavy griddle pan over a high heat. Fry the chorizo until it is browned and some of the juices are running in the pan. Add the spring onion and chilli and fry for 2-3 minutes.

  2. Add the scallops and fry for 2-3 minutes on either side or until cooked through. Drizzle over the runny honey and stir to coat. Divide the scallops and chorizo among the six scallop shells and serve.
