Method

  1. Heat half the oil in a frying pan. Add the shallots, garlic and lemon zest, and fry gently until soft. Add the greens the anchovies, and cook for 5 mins until the leaves are wilted.
  2. Meanwhile, heat the remaining oil in a non-stick pan, then add the scallops and fry for 1-2 mins on each side. Add the butter and lemon juice to the pan and swirl until the butter melts and you have a glossy sauce. Divide the cabbage and scallops between 6 plates and serve with the pan juices spooned over.

Looks good - one thing though - how do you divide 9 scallops between 6 plates? ...did this mean to read 'serves 3' instead of 6?
