16 scallops in half shells, cleaned

4 cm piece of ginger, peeled and finely grated

4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

3 shallots, finely sliced on an angle

80 ml soy sauce

1 lemon, cut into wedges


Lay out the scallops on a tray with baking paper.

Place a small amount of ginger on top of each scallop and drizzle the olive oil over the top.

Cook in the shells under a hot grill for around 3 minutes.

To finish, sprinkle the shallots and soy sauce over the scallops and serve in shells with wedges of lemon.

Serves 4 an an entree.

Tip! Scallops are cooked to medium rare when they are springy to the touch. Firm to the touch would be well done.
