What do I need?

  • 4 tbsp shallots, finely diced
  • 2 tbsp white wine vinegar
  • ½ cup water
  • 2 ½ tsp ground coriander
  • ½ cup cold unsalted butter
  • Salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper

  • Olive oil for brushing
  • 3 tbsp fresh coriander, finely diced
  • Fresh coriander leaves to serve

How do I make it?

  1. Add shallots, vinegar, water and ground coriander to a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Cook until the liquid has reduced to about 2 - 3 tablespoons then reduce heat to medium-low and whisk in butter, gradually. Season with salt and pepper and then cover and turn off heat.
  2. Pat scallops with paper towel to remove excess moisture and then brush with olive oil. Heat a grill pan over high heat until it begins to smoke, then add scallops and cook for 3 minutes per side, or until cooked though.
  3. To serve, stir fresh coriander into butter sauce and spoon over scallops. Garnish with fresh coriander leaves.
