Sea scallops with parsley and macadamia pesto

Preparation time
Cooking time
Serves
4

Ingredients

  • 16 sea scallops, removed from shell
  • Spray olive oil
  • Sea salt
  • 2 cups mixed leaves
  • 1 cup ripe Roma tomatoes, flesh only, diced
  • 1 tbsp dill leaves, picked
  • 4 tbsp parsley & macadamia pesto
  • Ground black pepper

Parsley and macadamia pesto

  • 1 cup parsley sprigs, washed and tightly packed into the cup
  • 1 tbsp macadamia nuts, roughly chopped, roasted, unsalted
  • 1/3 cup macadamia nut oil
  • 1 large clove garlic, crushed
  • 30g parmesan cheese, finely grated

Method

  1. Trim the scallops of the black membrane on the side – spray each one and cook on hot griddle pan for 30 seconds to 1 minute each side, depending on scallop thickness.
  2. Scallops must not be overcooked and prefer to be seared rather than cooked through as they go very tough when overcooked. Sprinkle with salt only as you cook.
  3. To serve, put equal amounts of the finely shredded lettuce in small piles around the perimeter of individual dinner plates. Top with scallops, sprinkle on the tomato dices that have been mixed with the dill.
  4. Spoon on pesto (see below) into the centre of each plate and grind black pepper over the plate. Serve immediately.

Parsley and macadamia pesto

  1. Put all ingredients into a processor bowl and blend until smooth. Pulse the processor until the ingredients start to break down, then leave the engine to run to form a smooth paste. Adjust the consistency of the pesto with more oil if needed.
