    Heat a large frying pan, season the scallops with a pinch of salt and pepper, add the remaining butter and the scallops to the pan and cook for 2 minutes on each side then remove the scallops and rest them. Add the girolles and sauté for a minute. Cook the remaining peas and broad beans in the water for 2 minutes and when cooked drain and add to the girolles.
    Serve on a plate with the pea mousse as a base, scallops on top and the fricassee of veg over the top, finish with the pea shoots.

Chef's tip

«Cook your scallops quickly and just once on each side to prevent them overcooking and going rubbery.»
