How to cook scallops

31st May 2011

Scallops are incredibly easy to cook and make for a very quick, delicious meal that you can impress your friends with. Just be careful that you don’t overcook them or they will turn into something like a rubber ball.

Keep the orange roe attached to the scallop muscle. They are tasty and make the dish more colourful. I’ve never understood why so many other countries remove them!
