Pan fry scallops in a very hot pan with butter, olive oil or coconut oil. Sear or brown them very quickly so they don’t become rubbery.
In a separate frying pan heat the chorizo and already cooked new potatoes until browned.
Lightly boil tenderstem broccoli and add the samphire at the last minute.
So quick and easy and yummy.

Ready cooked prawns
Chopped sweet potatoes
