Pan-Roasted Scallops with Cauliflower Puree....

this is what Son H made for his starter.....with recipe taken from his idol chef...the famous 'f ' word chef with a few michelin stars to his credit... Gordon Ramsay......here are some pics i took while he is busy preparing the food....


cooking the florets of cauliflower in milk and cream...after sauteeing in butter..

pureefying the cauliflower mixture in a food processor....


pan roasting the scallops that had shrinked to 1/3 of its original size when we bought it frozen......son was not too happy with his shrinked tiny scallops....



son skilfully shaping the cauliflower puree with two spoons.....

here is a video clip of him doing the presentation: with vinaigrette dressing made from sherry vinegar,olive oil,salt and pepper....and caper dressings...

Verdict: a really delicious starter meal..with the smooth and creamy cauliflower puree melting in the mouth...... the scallop is tender and sweet too...but a bit too tiny to get a satisfying bite.....will buy a bigger scallop next time.....
