I've always viewed scallops as being a dish you eat when at a restaurant rather than something you cook at home. They're relatively easy to cook and relatively easy to get wrong; all too often the result being rubbery, over cooked scallops.

This extremely easy dish will have you cooking and enjoying scallops at home. A simple sauce such as this coriander pesto will not only enhance the sweet, juicy and tender scallops but also provide a colourful and chic entree.

Juicy and tender scallops are enhanced with this eye popping, tasty yet simple coriander pesto.

Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 5 minutes
Makes: 2 as an entree

Dozen Fresh Scallops (without the roe)
50ml Lime Juice
50ml Virgin Olive Oil
Bunch of Coriander
1 Tablespoon Fish Sauce
1 Teaspoon Brown Sugar

Wash the coriander and place the entire bunch - leaves and stalks; into a food processor.

Add the lime juice, brown sugar, olive oil and fish sauce with the coriander.

Coriander Pesto is a quick and easy sauce to prepare, simply combine coriander, lime juice, brown sugar, olive oil and fish sauce and blend until smooth.

Process the ingredients for 10-15 seconds until well blended and smooth.

Pour the coriander pesto into a small saucepan and on a very low heat, carefully warm the pesto. Be careful not to simmer the sauce, as this will cause the pesto to separate.

Slightly warm the pesto and drizzle over a plate before adding the seared scallops.

Pat dry the scallops with absorbent paper towelling.

Add a teaspoon of butter and a couple of teaspoons of olive oil into a frying pan. When the pan is hot, add the scallops.

Sauté the scallops on both sides until golden, then season with a little rock salt and black pepper.

Sauté scallops for a couple of minutes until golden on both sides.

Drizzle some of the warm coriander pesto onto a plate and transfer the scallops onto the sauce.

Serve the Scallops immediately.
