Pan fried king scallops in half shell with chilli, garlic and coriander

Serves: 4


King scallops in half shell
1-2 chillies
8 cloves of garlic, skin on
4 tablespoons of chopped coriander
3 tablespoons of sunflower oil
1/2 lemon
Sea salt


If scallops are frozen defrost using package guidelines. Slice chilli thinly, slice each garlic clove into three pieces and chop coriander roughly. Divide chilli and garlic slices evenly into half scallop shells, drizzle with oil.

Top tip – be careful not to overcook the scallops or they will become rubbery.

Place shells onto a hot frying pan and cook for approximately 2-3 minutes depending on size and heat. Towards end of cooking (scallop meat should be opaque in apperance) add chopped coriander, squeeze of lemon juice and a little sea salt.
Split langoustines grilled with garlic and herb butter
Serves: 4


Highland Bay Seafoods Split Tails 16 langoustine tails
80g unsalted butter
3 teaspoon chopped herbs
Juice of half a lemon
4 lemon wedges
1 clove of garlic, chopped
Salt and pepper


If langoustines are frozen defrost in fridge using package guidelines ready for cooking. Remove the butter from the fridge in a small bowl and soften at room temperature or carefully on a low setting for a few seconds in the microwave. When soft mix in the lemon juice, chopped herbs and chopped garlic.


Preheat the grill, place the langoustines on a shallow tray, lightly greased of lined with tin foil. Season the langoustine tails with salt and pepper then spoon over the garlic and herb butter. Place under the grill and cook for 3-4 minutes. To serve divide the langoustines between four plates, pour over remaining herb butter and serve with lemon wedges.

Top tip: A simple mixed salad and crusty bread would eat well with the grilled langoustine tails.
