For a healthy-yet-special starter, try our easy pan-fried scallops with a squeeze of zesty lime and a sprinkling of chilli and coriander. Can also be added to a special salad as well.  

Serves: 2; Preparation time: 10-15 minutes; Cooking time: 2 minutes


  • 6-8 scallops
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp chopped fresh red chilli (optional)
  • 2 large chopped garlic cloves
  • juice of half a lime
  • roughly chopped cilantro/coriander
  • salt and pepper


  1. Fry the scallops in the olive oil for about 1 min until golden, then flip them over and sprinkle over the garlic cloves and chopped fresh red chilli into the pan. Cook for about 1 min more, then squeeze over the juice of the lime.
  2. Sprinkle with roughly chopped coriander and salt and pepper. Serve immediately.
