Seared scallops, prosciutto and horseradish are all wonderful on their own but put together with some radicchio to cut through the richness, they’re just superb. Spring time: love it!
|40 ml||Olive oil|
|6 slices||Prosciutto, use thin slices|
|¼ cup||Creamed horseradish, see below recipe or use store-bought|
|30 ml||Extra virgin olive oil|
|½ cup||Microgreens, optional|
- Scatter the radicchio over 2 plates. Heat olive oil in a large heavy-based frying pan over a very high heat until the oil is just starting to smoke. Lightly season scallops and sear for 20 seconds on one side before turning over and cooking for a further 15 seconds. Remove scallops from the pan to prevent them from over cooking and divide between two plates.
- Place the prosciutto on top and spoon over a generous amount of the horseradish cream. Finish with micro greens if using and a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil. Serve immediately.
Place cream into a bowl and whisk to a soft peak. Add lemon zest, horseradish, stir to combine and season to taste. Keep in the fridge for up to 1 week.
