Scallop and chorizo salad


















If we were having an 80s or 90s moment, this could be a warm salad, but now, in the 21st century, I served this hot hot hot straight from the pan. Quick, easy (as so often with expensive ingredients), the perfect supper after returning from the cinema (The Bank Job, very good, based on real life, joining up a couple of half-remembered incidents from the early 70s, involving a London bank vault robbery, a princess, a Soho sleaze merchant and Malcolm X).


Scallop and chorizo salad

Chorizo
Scallops
Rocket
Oil, lemon zest/juice

Slice the chorizo and fry quickly in a non-stick pan. When the oil has run, add oil and lemon juice, zest too if you like, and arrange the salad on plates. Add the scallops and chorizo. Mmm

That's such a simple salad. I never would have thought of combining chorizo and scallops, but it looks mouthwatering!
