Grilled scallops with daikon and cold Somen noodle sauce


1. Carefully remove the scallops from the half shells. Set the scallops aside and boil the shells for 1 minute. Dry and lay out onto 4 plates.

3. Place a small amount of the Somen noodles onto each scallop shell and top with a little of the finely cut daikon.
4. Place the butter into a pre-heated grill pan. When it starts to foam, add the scallops and cook each side for 1 minute.
5. Place a scallop onto each shell, spoon some of the cold sauce over each and finish with a coriander sprig.
