by The Kitchen with Great British Chefs

Starter Easy ​​​​​​​ 5 Skewers ​​​​​​​ Prep/Cook: 15 minutes


15 scallops

5 slices of black pudding, around 1.5cm thick

100g of samphire

1/4 pink grapefruit

olive oil



1. Set up the barbecue so you have the cast iron reversible griddle with the plancha side up on the lower level, and bring up the temperature to 200°C–250°C

2. Cut the black pudding slices into quarters and thread the black pudding and scallops onto the skewers, ensuring they both lay flat. This is key to getting an excellent sear on the scallops

4. Place the skewers flat on the plancha and cook for 2 minutes each side

5. With one minute to go, place the samphire on the plancha
