  • 150 ml (¼ pint) natural yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons chopped coriander
  • finely grated rind and juice of 1 lime
  • 2 teaspoons sesame oil
  • ½ small red onion, finely chopped
  • 15 g (½ oz) fresh root ginger, grated
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 2 teaspoons caster sugar
  • 2 teaspoons dark soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1 pointed green pepper, thinly sliced
  • 12 large scallops
  • rocket leaves, to serve

Mix together the yogurt, coriander and lime rind in a small bowl, then transfer to a serving dish.

Heat half of the oil in a small pan and gently fry the onion for 3 minutes, until it has softened. Remove the pan from the heat and add the ginger, garlic, sugar, soy sauce, measurement water and lime juice.

Brush a griddle with the remaining oil. Add the green pepper and scallops, cook the scallops for 1 minute on each side, until cooked through, and the pepper for a little longer, if necessary.

Pile the pepper and scallops on to serving plates with the rocket. Heat the soy glaze through and spoon it over the scallops. Serve with the yogurt sauce.
