This Warm Salad of Pear, Scallop & Chorizo recipe just looks so tempting and appetising that we will definitely be eating this over the next week or two. This recipe is quick and very easy to do, perfect for Erik and myself, but also great to share with family and friends.
Ingredients
  • 100g chorizo, skinned and thinly sliced
  • 12 fresh scallops, shucked and washed but whole with orange roe left on
  • 2 medium pears, cored and thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon sherry vinegar
  • Bunch of watercress, washed and destalked
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • Salt
Method
  1. Gently heat a non-stick frying pan. When hot add the chorizo and dry-fry until just beginning to brown - it will release its own oil after 30 seconds or so. Remove with a slotted spoon and set aside on kitchen paper.
  2. Add the scallops to the pan and sear in the chorizo oil for about 1 minute on each side. Remove and set aside with the chorizo.
  3. Finally, add the pear slices and fry quite briskly to caramelise a little. Once you have turned them, add the vinegar and swirl the pears around in it for a few seconds, then tip it all into a bowl.
  4. Add the scallops, chorizo, watercress and oil. Season with salt (not pepper in case the chorizo has a kick of its own) and serve immediately.
