  • 200g peas
  • 2 knobs of butter
  • A few sprigs of mint
  • 3-4 slices of Parma Ham
  • 8-12 scallops
  • Salt and black pepper
  • Olive oil

How To Make It

  • Step 1.

    Combine the butter and peas in a food processor along with the mint and a pinch of salt and pepper. Whizz until smooth then set aside.
  • Step 2.

    Fold each slice of parma ham until you have a little square-sized pillow. Heat a splash of olive oil in a pan and cook the ham for a minute a side. Remove from the pan.
  • Step 3.

    Add the remaining knob of butter to the pan then cook the scallops for 2 minutes as side.
  • Step 4.

    Place the puree on a plate, top with the Parma Ham, a scallop and drizzle a little sauce from the pan over the top. This dish also works delightfully with a roasted butternut squash puree.

Serve & Enjoy
