Clean, rinse and dry the Scallops removing the muscle

Remove the roe, season and dehydrate at 68c for 24 hours to dry and crisp and then blend to a powder, set aside.

Salt Baked Celeriac.

Wash the celeriac and dry

Combine the flour, salt and egg white together in a large bowl and mix to form a smooth dough, cling film and rest in the fridge for 30 minutes.

Roll out the dough into a large circle the thickness of about 1 cm, wrap around the celeriac so that it is completely sealed, place on to a baking sheet and cook for approx. 1 hour with a probe to 70c core temperature.

Remove from the oven and allow to cool to room temperature, break the crust and discard.

Cut away the skin from the celeriac and discard, cut the celeriac into 1cm square dice, combine with the nori seaweed powder, lemon juice and olive oil.

With the trimmings blend in a liquidiser with a little water to a puree, pass through a chinoise.

Deep fry the airbag at 180c in vegetable oil until puffed and golden, drain and season.


In a non-stick pan, sear the scallops to golden, turn, add butter to foam and napé the scallops with the butter until just cooked, finish with lemon juice and sea salt. Drain.
