Scallops with Chorizo and Sherry Vinegar Butter

Anyone in the UK will, by now, be familiar with the M&S 'Dine in for two for £10' offer. You can choose from a range (to serve two people) of mains, side dishes, and desserts and have a bottle of wine all for a tenner; can't be bad.

Canadian Scallops with Chorizo and Sherry Vinegar Butter

Yesterday I managed to get a pack of the M&S 'Dine in' Canadian scallops with Spanish chorizo and sherry vinegar butter for an amazing 75p - yes 75 pence! They had a few packs left from the offer and so they were reduced - lucky me ah?

If you don't happen to have an M&S near you, you can make this yourself as it really is easy to do. It's so easy there's no point in a recipe card.

You will need:
Scallops, Spanish chorizo sausage, freshly chopped flat leaved parsley and a dollop of butter with a teeny bit of sherry vinegar.

How to do it:
In a frying pan, melt a little butter and fry the chorizo, now add the scallops and a little more butter and a tiny splash of sherry vinegar - they will only take a minute or so each side. Add the freshly chopped flat leaved parsley and serve immediately.


  1. i just love this!!! what a great dish... :)

  2. 75p has to be the deal of the week!

    Nice with chorizo risotto too.

  3. I haven't had scallops in awhile. Great reminder! They look perfect!

  4. I bet the chorizo added great flavor to the scallops...this meal looks delicious!

  5. Well gee, Jan, that looks just AMAZING!!!! Wow. Yum.

  6. Wow that's so cheap!! I love the color of the scallops. They look like they've been cooked perfectly! Also thank you for your encouraging comments, reading your blog always lifts up my spirits :)

  7. OK, you have to fill us in...is this a frozen dinner, pre-packed or just a damn good deal?

    Canadian scallops, EH?

  8. Peter - It was just a damn good deal! Now, the scallops are air flown from Canada so says the info on the box. It was a fresh meal and not from the frozen section.
    A bargain indeedy - was normally £5.99

  9. How was the roast broccoli?

  10. I like the sound of the scallop and chorizo combo!

  11. You did well with the scallops! Looks really delicious.
