  • Turn the scallops over and continue to fry on the other side until the same golden brown colour is also achieved.

  • Add the cooked, sliced potatoes to the same pan and return to the heat and gently colour.
  • Place the peeled cobnuts on a tray and place in a hot oven and toast until lightly golden.
  • Place the three slices of potato on each serving plate and place a pan-fried scallop on each one.
