Home Grown recipes: Scallops with Hazelnut & Coriander Butter

Rick Stein is one of our foodie heroes – the way he cooks with seafood is inspired. This recipe is a go-to dish for when Sally Scarborough is entertaining. Over the years she has replaced the scallops with Balmain bugs and prawns. It’s a very Australian dish, and that’s why we love it.


4 scallops in shell

Handful of hazelnuts

½  bunch of coriander, leaves only, roughly chopped

½ bunch of mint, leaves only, roughly chopped

½ shallot, roughly chopped

80g unsalted butter

sea salt and black pepper

1 tbsp lemon juice

1 tbsp lime juice


Clean scallops and remove roe. Toast hazelnuts under grill for about 5 mins, or until golden brown. Then remove hazelnut skins by rubbing in a tea towel.

Add shallot, coriander and mint to a food processor along with hazelnuts, butter, lemon and lime juice and a pinch of salt and grind of black pepper. Mix ingredients until roughly blended.

Cook scallops in a frying pan for 1 min each side to colour. Place scallops back into shells, place 1 tablespoon of butter mixture on top and cook under a moderate grill until cooked through.

Top with a little coriander and squeeze of lemon. Serve immediately with a glass of Green Label Semillon.
