Scallop & witlof salad with parmesan & garlic croutons


  • Melt the butter and garlic in a heavy-bottomed pan. Set aside for about 10 mins and then strain.
  • Paint both sides of the toast triangles with the garlic butter and panfry in a little hot oil until golden brown all over. Then toss in the parmesan to coat on both sides.
  • At the same time, toss the witlof and rocket with a little fresh oil, the balsamic and seasonings. Set aside.
  • Briefly sear the scallops on a lightly oiled ridged grill (or BBQ), seasoning before turning over. Then gently toss with the salad.
  • To serve, place the croutons around the edge of individual plates and mound the salad in the centre.
