  • 8 scallops
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 large garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon fresh red chilli, chopped
  • lime juice
  • chopped coriander
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Heat the olive oil in a non-stick frying pan or cast-iron pan over a medium high heat and cook the scallops for 2-3 minutes each side, until soft and slightly browned.

  • Whilst the scallop are cooking, chop the garlic and chilli finely and mix with the lime juice, coriander and seasoning.

  • Once the scallops are cooked, add the garlic and chilli mixture to the pan and allow to sizzle for a moment before pouring in the lime juice.

  • Cook for a few moments – you want the lime juice to cook down a little and for the garlic and chilli to infuse with the juice and oil from the pan.

  • Once the sauce has reduced, toss the reduced sauce over the scallops.

  • Serving Suggestions: Serve immediately with bread.
