I've long been a fan of scallops and bacon, and scallops with chili, and this is my combination of the two using chorizo - the sausage, not the salame - to ooze its paprika-hot orange oil over the sweet white scallops. It's quicker than the speed of light to make and quite as dazzling.

Ingredients

Directions

Put a pan on to get hot and then dry-fry (the chorizo will give out plenty of its own oil) the chorizo until crisped on either side; this should take no more than 2 minutes.

Remove the chorizo to a bowl and fry the scallops in the chorizo oil for about 1 minute a side.

Return the chorizo to the pan with the scallops, add the lemon juice and let bubble for a few seconds before arranging on a serving plate and sprinkling with lots of parsley.
