When we think seafood we rarely think curry sauce. Personally, I'm a huge fan once the balance is right. You just want the spices to compliment not take over. This starter recipe is something you can try on a weekend as a nice treat. S

  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 4 SAGE LEAVES (finely sliced )
  • 6 slice(2cm x 1cm) pieces s of wafer thin pancetta or wafer-thin bacon
  • 1 tsp of mild curry powder
  • 1 lemon zest & juice
  • 1 tsp salt

Method

  1. Firstly prepare the scallop if the roe is attached you can leave it or remove it.
  2. Some people like it some people don't. It’s a personal taste. To remove simply apply a little pressure to the scallop & pull away off gently.
  3. In preferably a non stick pan – fry the pancetta with no oil on a low to medium heat for 2-3 minutes.
  4. Turn up the heat to medium high & fry the scallops for 3 minutes on 1 side.

  7. Add the cream & salt to the pan with the butter mixture & reduce by 1/3. Place the scallops in a warm bowl & add the sauce.
  8. For a lovely finish to the dish that works really well with the curry flavours add a tsp of Sage products Rayu to each dish.
