Serves 4


To cook the endives

  • Clean and remove the outer leaves
  • Scoop out the hard part from the base of the endive, as it tends to be bitter
  • Slice the endives into thin strips
  • Melt 1 ½ tbsp (20 g) butter over a medium heat
  • Add the strips of endive and soften for 5 minutes
  • Add salt and pepper to taste
  • Cover and cook over a low heat for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally

To cook the scallops

  • Separate the coral (orange part) from the scallop (white part)
  • Cut the scallops in half horizontally
  • Heat 2/3 tbsp (10 g) butter in a pan over a high heat
  • Sear the corals and the scallops for 20-25 seconds on each side
  • Keep warm

To prepare the sauce

  • Deseed the tomato and cut into small pieces
  • Clean and chop the shallot
  • Heat the olive oil in a sauté pan over a high heat
  • Add the tomato and shallot
  • Stir well and brown for 2 minutes
  • Deglaze the pan with balsamic vinegar and then add the white wine
  • Reduce by ? on a low boil
  • Add the cream and stir to bind while adding 1½ tbsp (20 g) softened butter (the butter should already be soft and should be added in small pieces)
  • Remove from the heat and strain through a conical sieve to extract the liquid
  • Arrange a bed of endives on a plate and place the scallops and their corals on top. Cover with the sauce or drizzle it over the endives


One suggestion is to put a few thin slices of cured Serrano ham on the plate. Try it, and let me know what you think.
