Pan fried scallops with lime & pepper king prawns


I heard a lot of noise pre-Xmas about concerns over ‘staying primal’ over the holidays, but we managed to do very well in our house yesterday. I did fried eggs & smoked salmon for brekkie, followed by a two course late lunch around 4pm, and didn’t even have room for desert!

Ingredients (for two adults & a toddler):
100g mixed salad leaves
200g king prawns
200g scallops
Large knob of goats butter
Large fresh lime
Tbsp or so extra virgin olive oil
Salt & pepper

– put a handful of salad leaves on the plates and distribute the king prawns on top, dress with olive oil, the juice of half a lime and a few turns of freshly ground black pepper

– melt the goats butter over a high heat in a non stick frying pan, then arrange the scallops in a circle around the pan. Season with a little salt & pepper, and fry for 1-2 mins on each side

– remove from the pan and put on top of the salad in between the prawns, spoon the buttery juices over the top and serve immediately with a wedge of fresh lime
