Scallops with Morcilla

prep 10 mins cook 5 mins
  • 6 cleaned king scallops, preferably in their shells
  • 25 g (1 oz) morcilla sausage
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 spring onion, finely sliced
  • 1 teaspoon chopped lemon thyme
  • salt and pepper

Pat the scallops dry on kitchen paper and season lightly with salt and pepper. Finely chop or break the morcilla into small pieces.

Heat the oil in a small frying pan and gently fry the scallops for 1 minute on each side. Transfer them to the cleaned shells or to small, warm serving dishes if the scallops were ready-shelled.

Add the spring onion, lemon thyme and morcilla to the pan and heat gently, stirring, for 1 minute. Season lightly with salt and pepper and spoon over the scallops with the cooking juices to serve.
