6 baby leeks
100 ml olive oil
10 scallops, cleaned and roes left on if you like them
10 cherry tomatoes, halved
- Rub the leeks with a little oil, then chargrill for 10 minutes until very brown on the outside. Put them in a dish, cover them tightly with foil and put a tea towel on top so they continue cooking in the residual heat.
- Whizz the basil leaves with enough oil to give a thick, dark dressing.
- Brush the scallops with oil and season them well. Heat a pan until it is very hot, then fry the scallops on each side for a couple of minutes until they are brown and crisp. Pull the outer layer of skin off each leek. Divide them between 2 plates, add 5 scallops and 10 halves of cherry tomatoes to each. Spoon over the basil oil dressing to serve.
