For the salad:

  • 4 cups corn kernels cooked
  • 1 red pepper finely diced
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons butter melted
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 3 basil leaves chopped finely
  • salt and pepper

For the seared scallops:

  • 680 g scallops large size, patted dry (I used U15 count scallops)
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • salt and pepper


  • Place all the salad ingredients into a bowl and toss together.
  • For the seared scallops, salt and pepper the scallops on both sides. You will need to cook the scallops in 3-4 batches so as not to overcrowd the pan. In a frying pan, heat 1 teaspoon of butter and 1 teaspoon of oil on medium-high heat. Add the scallops and cook on each side for about 2 minutes. (Depending on your scallop size, you will need to adjust your cooking time accordingly. I used U15 count scallops).
  • Spoon salad onto dishes and top with the seared scallops. Serve.
