How to prepare:

To make the sauce of risotto with scallops and concentrated basil sauce pour the stock into a pan, bring to the boil and reduce by half.
Add the dash of wine. Blend the butter, basil and salt in a blender or food processor and use as much as you need to bind the liquid.

To make the risotto heat half the butter in a heavy-based pan and add the rice, stir well to coat and cook until it starts to brown.

Add the stock a time bit at a time, stirring well and continue to cook.

Meanwhile quickly cook the scallops cut into disc shapes in a non-stick pan (3 per plate) without any seasoning.

Season with salt and dust with freshly-grated pink pepper.

When the rice is cooked ‘al dente’, remove from the heat and beat to a creamy consistency with the remaining butter.

Serve the risotto in dishes with the hot sauce drizzled around it and the scallop discs arranged on top.
