Chorizo Scallops recipe


  • 400g baby scallops
  • 115g chorizo sausage
  • Juice of one lemon
  • Large handful of parsley
  • Salt and pepper

Method of Preparation:

  1. Remove the skin from the chorizo, if there is any, and slice it thinly. If using larger scallops, slice them in half.

  2. Finely chop the parsley, removing the stalks.

  3. Heat up a large frying pan until warm. Add the chorizo to the pan and fry it for about three or four minutes until the oil starts to ooze from the sausage and the chorizo is browned.

  4. Once browned, remove the chorizo from the pan, being careful to leave behind all of the oil.

  5. Fry the scallops in the chorizo for a couple of minutes either side. During the last minute or so of cooking, add the chorizo back into the pan along with the lemon juice. Let everything cook together for thirty seconds.

  6. Remove the scallops and chorizo from the heat and season well.

  7. Scatter with the parsley to serve.
