Additional Info

  • Ingredients
    2 tbspSCS® Unsalted Butter
    100gmSCS® Unsalted Butter (diced)
    6Large Scallops
    1Ripe Tomato
    3Basil Leaves (sliced)
    1/2 tspShallots (chopped)
    1 tbspWhite Wine Vinegar
    1 tbspWater
    1/2 tbspGOURMET Extra Virgin Olive Oil
    Salt & Pepper (to taste)
  • Directions
    1. Directions for beurre blanc: To remove the skin and pulp of the tomato, bring a small bowl of water to a boil. Make a small ‘X’ incision on the bottom of the tomato and put in boiling water for 1 min.
    2. Remove immediately and cool under cold water. The skin should be easy to remove by peeling it off with a small knife.
    3. Quarter the tomato, remove the pulp and discard. Dice the tomato into cubes.
    4. In a sauce pot, add the shallots, vinegar and water and reduce by half over heat.
    5. Turn the fire down to as low as possible and slowly whisk in the diced butter a little at a time. The butter should just blend into the liquid. Do not heat up too much or add too much butter at once as it will cause the sauce to separate.
    6. Once done, add in the diced tomato and basil and season to taste. Keep warm but do not boil.
    7. Directions  for Sautéed scallops: Pre-heat a frying pan till smoking.
    8. Season the scallops with salt and pepper and 1/2 tbsp olive oil. Place the scallops in the pan one at a time, turning them after about 2 minutes.
    9. Add in 2 tbsp butter and let cook for a further 2 minutes.
    10. Remove the scallops and blot on kitchen paper and plate accordingly. Spoon the sauce over.

Cooking Tips

  • Toss a little salt

    When chopping herbs, toss a little salt onto the cutting board; it will keep the herbs from flying around.
