Chef: Justine Schofield

Serves: 4 as an entree

Time: 15 minutes


12 scallops, ideally with their roe still attached

1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

½ a small fennel, finely chopped and fronds reserved for garnish

1 clove of garlic, finely chopped

25g butter

80ml brandy

1 tomato, peeled and finely chopped

200ml pure cream

1 tbsp of finely grated Parmesan

1 sprig of dill, picked for garnish


Drizzle oil over the scallops and season with salt and pepper. Heat a large non-stick pan over a medium-high heat. Sear the scallops, in for 30-40 seconds on each side and then remove from pan.

Add the butter, fennel and and garlic to the pan and cook for 2-3 minutes until softened. Now pour in the brandy and season with salt and pepper. Once the alcohol has cooked off, add the tomato and cream and cook for a further minute. Add a sprinkle of Parmesan, toss to combine and turn off the heat.

Return the scallops into the sauce and fold through.

Serve with extra fennel fronds and a few sprigs of dill.
