Get into some Aussie seafood

Try these Aussie scallops for something a bit different 

With this recipe the simplest method for the actual cooking of the scallops is the key . Quickly seared in a hot pan with a dollop of organic butter , coconut oil , freshly squeezed lime plus salt & pepper . (do this last)
