Succotash with scallops

Method

  • Melt the butter and oil in a heavy-bottomed pot and gently saute the zucchini until softish. Add the corn kernels, toss well and cook for 2 mins, before adding the cream, seasonings and cayenne. Mix well, turn the heat down and gently cook for another 2 mins until reduced a little.
  • Add the cannelini beans to the pot and toss well. Then add the herbs, mix well and taste for seasoning. Turn the heat right down and briefly simmer.
  • At the same time, sear the scallops on a lightly oiled grill or in a hot pan.
  • To serve, spoon the Succotash in individual bowls and top with the scallops.
