I haven’t had scallops for a very long time so I thought I’d just grill some on a low-carb base of cauliflower mash. It’s not as creamy as my creamy cauliflower puree but it’s got slightly lower calories.
Prep time 15 mins
Cook time 15 mins
600g cauliflower (approx. half a large cauliflower), cut into chunks
1 large onion, diced
1 tbsp olive oil
60g bacon, diced
16 scallops (approx 280-300g)
Bunch of parsley sprigs for garnish
Boil the cauliflower and onion for about 10 minutes or until cooked through. Drain and set aside.
Meanwhile, heat up the olive oil on a grill pan and saute the bacon until fragrant. Add the scallops and cook for a few minutes on each side.
Blend the cauliflower and onion with the butter. Season with a bit of salt and pepper.
Lay some of the cauliflower mash on a plate. Top with about 4 scallops with bacon pieces. Garnish with some parsley sprigs and serve.
