An impressive, very quick dinner dish with a superb aromatic flavour.
500g scallops, out of the shells (without roe)
1 tsp fennel seeds
1 tbsp lemon oil or fruity olive oil
1 unwaxed lemon, Fleur de sel
Grind the fennel seeds finely with a pestle and mortar. Wash the lemon and grate the zest.
Mix the seeds and zest with the oil and vacuum seal this together with the scallops in a SousVide bag. Ensure that the scallops lie flat beside one another in an even layer.
Place the bag on shelf level 3 on the ‘SousVide’ programme and cook at 60°C for 10 minutes.
Juice the lemon and sprinkle the cooked scallops with this and a little fleur de sel.
