Scallops with Butter and Lemon Recipe

(serves 4)

12 large fresh scallops
55g butter
Juice from 1/2 lemon
1 tbsp chopped parsley
2 tbsp fish stock
salt and pepper
little flour for dusting


1. This simple shellfish recipe is easy to make and tastes delicious. To begin with dust the scallops lightly with the flour.

2. Heat butter in a large pan and add the scallops and fry for 2 minutes on each side. Remove the scallops from the pan and place on a side dish.

3. Add the fish stock and lemon juice to the pan, stirring well. If necessary add a little more stock for more juice if required. Add the parsley and salt and pepper, stir well.

4. Finally return the scallops to the pan also, let them heat through then serve at once, pouring a little juice over each portion. Sit down and enjoy.
