Canadian 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!
I know what you're probably thinking about the wine, but it's always a half decent bottle I say, so that makes it all the better!


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.
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.
Yummy yum yum!

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

  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
