Grilled Scallops with 'Nduja Butter

20 Minutes | easy | Serves 4

This is such a simple recipe but cooking the scallops in their shells looks really impressive and helps to contain all that glorious ‘nduja butter, too. Make sure to have lots of bread on hand, for soaking it all up and a big salad on the side.

Ask the fishmonger to remove the scallops from their shells and clean them. Don’t forget to ask for the shells to take away!


  • 8 scallops and their shells (you will need to buy these from a fishmonger)
  • 100g butter
  • 1 tablespoon ‘nduja
  • Small handful parsley leaves, finely chopped Lemon wedges, to serve




Combine the butter and ‘nduja in a mini blender or bowl and process or mash until well combined.
