The scallop nut is a must during the holiday season. It is a luxury product with a very fine taste and is satisfied with simple combinations with few ingredients. The combination with vanilla and its spices may surprise you, but the flavours sublimate themselves to give a perfect combination.

This dish cannot stand to wait and should be eaten immediately after leaving the pan and of course should never be reheated! The combination of vanilla pods with salty ingredients always surprises guests, yet many chefs have delighted their customers with weddings like this one. All you have to do is dare to test and you will be definitively won over...

Scallops become elastic and unpleasant in the mouth if cooked for too long. Their cooking must be perfect. Two minutes per side is more than enough for large nuts.

This recipe will be delicious as it is as an appetizer for a festive meal. To make a dish, add a leek fondue or yellow rice to the longa turmeric powder as a side dish, a guaranteed treat!

Remove the vanilla pod and return to low heat during the rest of the recipe.

In a frying pan, heat the olive oil and place the scallops in it.
