Method

  1. Wash and dry the scallops and put them in a bowl. Mix 2 tbsp of the olive oil and 2 tbsp of the lemon juice in a bowl with a little salt and pepper, then pour over the scallops. Leave for 15 mins, until the scallops have turned white.
  2. Cut each strip of bacon in half across and wrap around a scallop. Secure with cocktail sticks.
  3. Whisk together the remaining 2 tbsp lemon juice with the mustard, honey, salt and pepper. Whisk in the remaining 6 tbsp olive oil until the dressing is thick, then stir in the capers and parsley. Divide the curly endive between 8 serving plates.
  4. Preheat a grill to hot. Lay the scallops in one layer over a lined grill pan. Grill the scallops for 3-4 mins each side, until the bacon is crisp and golden. Put three scallops on each plate and spoon over the dressing.

Nice, although the dressing needed more honey for our tastes. Also served on baby spinach and rocket, nice crisp texture to compliment the scallops.

Very easy and delicious. I served it on a bed of baby spinach with jersey Royals and lightly smoked streaky bacon - and it was very well received. Quantities above not enough if served as a main meal.
