Surf and Turf Salad


For the dressing combine the ingredients.

Heat a large non-stick fry pan on medium heat. Add 1 tablespoon of olive oil and the speck pieces. Then add torn sourdough and cook for 3-4 minute or until they are both golden brown and crispy. Remove from the pan and drain on paper towelling.  

Wipe the pan clean and place back on the stove over a high heat. Drizzle the last tablespoon of olive oil over the scallops and season with salt and pepper. Sear the scallop on one side for 30-45 seconds before turning over and cooking for a further 30 seconds. Remove from the pan.

Cut the beetroot in quarters and arrange on a platter with the scallops, watercress and frisee. Scatter the speck and croutons over the scallops and spoon over the dressing.
