6 half shell scallops

2 spring onions, trimmed and sliced

2 red chillies, thickly sliced

2 tbsp runny honey

1 whole lemon cut in wedges (optional)


  1. Heat a griddle pan over a high heat. Fry the chorizo until it is browned and some of the juices are running in the pan. Add the spring onion and chilli and fry for 2-3 minutes.
  2. Add the scallops and fry for 2-3 minutes on either side or until cooked through. Drizzle over the runny honey and stir to coat. Divide the scallops and chorizo among the six scallop shells.
  3. Serve the scallops with some lemon wedges (optional) and a side of some sliced crusty bread to dip and enjoy the flavourful juices collected in the shells.
