This is a brilliant starter for when you are entering over the weekend. Why? Because its ready in under 15 minutes, it’s a bit of a showstopper, but actually very easy to make (no-one need know that) and they taste absolutely amazing! Who’s going to give these a go?
Recipe for 6 scallops
3 scallops (in the half shell) per person as a starter
50g rice noodles
Sesame oil to drizzle the noodles
Coriander to serve
2 tablespoons sesame oil
1 tablespoon soy sauce
Juice of 1-2 limes (taste to check)
1 clove garlic - crushed
1 teaspoon grated ginger
1 red chilli - finely chopped
Pre - heat the oven to 220 degrees.
Mix the dressing ingredients in a jar and set aside.
Plunge the noodles into boiling water for 4-5 minutes then drain. Drizzle in sesame oil so they don’t stick together.
Add a small amount of noodles to each scallops shell and drizzle with 1 teaspoon of the dressing on each scallop.
Roast for 8-10 minutes and remove from the oven. Drizzle with more of the dressing and sprinkle with coriander.
