Preparation

  1. Thaw the scallops in the refrigerator overnight. Then rinse with cold water and pat dry thoroughly.
  2. Dice the shallots and sauté briefly in olive oil. Deglaze with the vegetable broth and bring to the boil. Add the frozen peas and cook for about 10 minutes. Set aside 2 tablespoons of peas for garnish. Pour off some of the broth and puree the remaining peas in the vegetable broth using a hand blender. Season with the lime zest, salt and pepper
  3. Bring the white wine to the boil in a saucepan and reduce to a quarter. Add 40 g cold butter in pieces, stir gently and set aside.
  4. Sear the scallops in a hot pan with olive oil for about 2 minutes on each side.
  5. Pour the puree onto the plate and top with the scallops. Drizzle the whole thing with the white wine butter. Add the cress on top to garnish.

If you get pea cress in a store, you should use it. Alternatively, as in our kitchen, use normal garden cress or beetroot cress for a splash of color on the plate.
