Scallops with Chorizo

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.

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.

Another great starter course recipe you might like is Seared Scallops with Serrano Ham - it's  Rick Stein recipe and it's delicious!

  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
