Summer Scallop Salad with Corn, Basil and Nectarines

Image

This week’s French Fridays with Dorie recipe is Chicken Liver Gateaux with Pickled Onions.
I decided to go rogue and catch up on a recipe I missed.

When theFFwD group made this dish it was winter in Australia and nectarines were not available.
I love scallops and was disappointed at the time I couldn’t make this dish as Dorie intended.
So, I made a mental note to myself to wait until summer…

Surf lessons…

Theme parks…

Water slides…

And don’t forget the sweltering Aussie heat.

Summer is here!
So Chicken Liver Gateaux has been pushed to the back burner in favour of more seasonal cooking!

Tomatoes, corn, nectarines and basil are teamed with plump, tender, scallops…

And topped with a basil puree and lime dressing.
(It’s still school holidays here and I took my two beautiful boys grocery shopping with me.
To break up a fight, I asked them to go and grab me a two limes.
I had to laugh when I got home and unpacked the groceries…)

Each one looked at me indignantly and blamed his brother!

In the end, It all came together beautifully.
I served this with fresh, crusty, bread rolls and everyone enjoyed it.
And that’s all that matters!

The perfect summer dish 🙂

I have to say, I’m curious about what the rest of the French Fridays with Dorie group thought of the Chicken Liver Gateaux!
