I am having a drive to use more of my cookery books as they just seem to sit there gathering dust as I tend to use recipes from the Internet instead. This is the first one of three I made last week, it was really simple but really flavourful. I served it with sweet potato mash underneath.
Scallops with Coriander Yoghurt (from 200 Low Calorie Recipes)
150ml natural yoghurt
2 tbsp chopped coriander
zest and juice 1 lime
2 tsp oil
1/2 small red onion, finely chopped
1 tsp fresh ginger, grated
1 garlic clove, crushed
2 tsp caster sugar
2 tsp dark soy sauce
1 tbsp water
1 pepper, sliced
12 large scallops
Mix together the yoghurt, coriander and lime zest in a small bowl.
Heat half the oil in a small saucepan and gently fry the onion for 3 min, until soft. Remove from the heat and add the ginger, garlic, sugar soy sauce, water and lime juice.
Brush a griddle with the remaining oil. Add the pepper and cook for 1-2 mins, add the scallops and cook for 1 min on each side.
Pie the rocket onto a plate and top with the peppers and scallops. Heat the soy glaze through and spoon it over the scallops. Serve with the yoghurt sauce.
