200g (2 cups) green beans, trimmed and halved
2 tbsp olive oil
half a red onion, finely diced
100 g (1 cup) corn
1 tbsp double cream
1 tsp stock concentrate
125 ml (1/2 cup) water
6 scallops, cleaned
10 cherry tomatoes, halved
2-3 sprigs parsley
2-3 sprigs thyme
Over a pot of boiling water, steam beans for 10-15 minutes (until just tender with a little bite to them).
Meanwhile heat 1 tbsp olive oil in a medium-sized pan over a medium heat. Add the diced onion and sauté for 3-5 minutes until soft and translucent. Add corn, double cream, stock concentrate and water. Bring to the boil and allow to simmer for 5 minutes.
Remove from heat and using a handheld mixer, blend until desired consistency. Set aside.
Heat a griddle pan with a drizzle of oil until hot. Season scallops and arrange them in the pan. Cook for about 1 minute then turn and cook for a further 30 seconds.
To serve, dollop the creamed corn onto a plate and arrange the scallops, green beans, and tomatoes on the top.
Garnish with herbs and enjoy!
