A recipe from one of my favourite cookbooks – ” The Really Helpful Cookbook” by Ruth Watson. I have cooked and returned to so many meals from this book. This is easy to make and the flavours of the sauce go very well with the shellfish.

      2. Heat the frying pan over a very high heat until very hot. Meanwhile season the scallops, dust them lightly with flour and smear them equally lightly with olive oil.
      3. Put the scallops into the frying pan and sear them for 2 minutes on one side. Turn over and cook for a further minute. Remove from the pan and serve immediately, dribbled with the sauce vierge and a wafer or two of crisp pancetta on top.
