How To Make… Grilled Scallops with Garlic Butter & Peppercorn

With the opening of so many boundary pushing Thai restaurants – we’re (as a nation) finally discovering there’s more to Thai cuisine than green curry and Pad Thai.

Having been expanding since opening their first restaurant in 1996, Thai Square now has 13 restaurants in and around London, serving authentic, balanced and fresh Thai Food. Joining some more classic dishes, these king scallops are relatively easy to recreate at home, marinated with coriander, green peppercorn, garlic, oyster sauce and soy sauce. The simple presentation is also attractive and makes for an impressive, almost failsafe crowd pleaser.
