  • Serves icon Serves 2

This sumptuous scallop dinner, served with creamy mashed potatoes, looks impressive and tastes divine but is deceptively simple to make.

Ingredients

  • 400g chopped potatoes
  • Finely chopped spring onions
  • 4 slices streaky bacon, chopped
  • 10 scallops
  • Chopped fresh flatleaf parsley
  • Lemon wedges, to squeeze over

Method

  1. Cook the potatoes in a pan of boiling water until tender, then drain, mash and mix in a knob of butter and the spring onions.
  2. Meanwhile, heat a large frying pan and add a large knob of butter and a dash of oil. Add the streaky bacon. Cook until crisp.
  3. Remove, reheat the pan, add the scallops and cook over a high heat for 1 minute each side.
  4. Sprinkle with chopped fresh flatleaf parsley. Scatter with the bacon, serve with the mash and lemon wedges to squeeze over.
