Seared Scallops with Leek Tagliatelle and Chilli Jam

I love scallops, they are a real treat and ideal to serve when you have friends or family round for supper. I found a recipe for Seared Scallops with leeks and lemon chilli butter on the BBC Good Food website and used that as the basis for my meal.

I'm eating fish twice a week for a Healthy, Happy Heart.  You can find out more about how you can increase your Omega 3 levels and improve your health at the Fish is the Dish website.

I've never made a leek tagliatelle but it was really easy to do and very tasty indeed and, as it is steamed, you don't lose the vitamins either.
I really liked this recipe, but I already had some wild garlic butter in the freezer, and wanted to use that instead of the lemon chilli butter.
Wild Garlic
I added a teaspoon of Galloway Chilli Lime and Ginger Jam to the pan with the wild garlic butter after the scallops had been seared and caramelised.

This is Sheena, our local Chilli Queen from Galloway Chillies,  at the Farmers Market where I bought a couple of jars of her lovely Chilli Jam.

The Chilli Lime and Ginger Jam with the Wild Garlic butter
I felt that the dish,  as described on the website, wouldn't be substantial enough for a main meal, so I made some buttery mashed potatoes topped them with the leek tagliatelli, the scallops and the garlicky, buttery, chilli juices.  The whole dish was an absolute delight.

I'm entering this recipe for Herbs on Saturday a recipe sharing blog event hosted by Karen at Lavender and Lovage.

Love love love scallops!! These look so good especially with the jam - thanks for sharing Janice.
And what the heck is up with all the anonymous comments - I've been getting loads too :(

Thanks Stuart, scallops are one of my favourite shellfish. Yes, the anonymous comments were bad enough when they were just trying to sell handbags I just deleted them. But I just don't want to read the offensive ones!

Exquisite dish. Don't those scallops look so tempting and juicy? Love the pairing of the chilli jam and leek tagliatelle.

Chili lime that you use make me interest to buy them. It sound great mix with your recipe I love the taste and I already make it.

Jason - Masterchef? Not me, food is my love and my hobby, but I wouldn't like to do it as a day job.
Jacqueline- thanks, they were really nice fat scallops
Arnot - Contact Galloway Chilli if you are interested in buying the chilli jam, hope you enjoy making this dish.

The chilli jam with scallops looks like a very tempting supper.

I do adore scallops, and like you I'm fish mad, we ate fish or seafood everyday in Brittany where it is so fresh! This sounds so delicious, my mouth is watering!

Ooh I love scallops but can't remember the last time I ate or cooked one and even then it wouldn't have been a whole one! I'll just salivate over your picture for the time being:-)

Leek tagliatelle sounds wildly wonderful! I've pinned this recipe & intend to make some at some point! :) I found you through UK Food Blogger's Assoc.
