This is the easiest recipe and a great way to change up the usual salad. Lightly sautéed scallops are set atop a bed of peppery rocket (I love how that sounds so sharp as opposed to the dreary American “a-rooooo-gull-a”) and served with a dollop of rich saffron mayo.
Scallops With Rocket And Saffron Mayonnaise makes for a lovely first course or add a side of rice to make it a light supper.

The spirited new song from UK-based singer Joni Fuller is “Oh Oh Oh Oh” so good. Everybody says so. :)
