Scallops with Pancetta and Sloe Gin

Surf and Turf done \"Sloe\". A decadent but simple dish, with some serious wow factor! Absolutely delicious flavour hit, can be served as canapés or as part of your festive feast.

You can prepare these delicious morsels a few hours earlier and then simple cook them a few minutes prior to serving!

16 scallops
1 tsp extra virgin olive oil
4 slices pancetta
1 dsp sloe gin


1. To prepare the scallops firstly remove the roe, then place in a bowl and season the scallops with salt and pepper and extra virgin olive oil.

2. Slice the pancetta into strips a suitable size for wrapping the scallops you have. Wrap each scallop with pancetta around the girth, leaving the the flat sides exposed. Secure the little packages with a toothpick.

3.Place a frying pan on a high heat, make sure it is really hot first, then fry the scallops each side for around 1.5 minutes, pressing them down gently so they caramelise but careful not to burn.

4. Then quickly remove from the heat, splash the scallops with the sloe gin and then serve. We served ours on a bed ofnasturtium leaves and flowers which are edible and well as decorative.
