Grilled Scallops with Cauliflower Purée
This dish is a real treat! It’s simple to make and very impressive for guests! Serve this with a tomato and cucumber salad or with grilled asparagus.
8 large scallops
Juice of 1-2 limes
1 head cauliflower
1/2 cup cream
3/4 cup butter
Garnish: Fried Onions (homemade or French’s French Fried Onions)
Boil the cauliflower for 7 minutes in salted water, then cook in the cream for 5 minutes. Put the cream and cauliflower into a food processor and blend until smooth. Pass through a sieve. Cook the butter until golden brown and add to the puree. Season to taste with salt and a pinch of nutmeg.
Heat a little olive oil in a very hot sauté pan and add scallops and cook for 1-2 minutes on each side (until just cooked through!). Remove and season with lime juice, salt and pepper.
To serve, arrange a scoop of cauliflower purée on each serving plate. Top each with 2 scallops, add onion garnish and serve!
