Prepare your scallops by removing the muscle. Place on a cloth to make sure the scallops are dry. Slice the tomatoes in half, remove the seeds and slice into small cubes (brunoise). Roast the nuts in the oven for 5 minutes to torrefy. Crush the nuts with a pan until desired size. Roughly chop the olives. Cut the bacon into strips and cook and pan fry them until they are crispy.
- Cooking of the scallops
Sear the foie gras in a non-stick pan. Once nice an dbrown, remove the foe gras and most of the fat. Sear the scallops on both side to seal in the flavor and juices. (3 min approx on one side) and seasoned with salt. Place the seared scallop on the baking sheet, add the foie gras pieces and finish the cooking in the oven for 2-3 minutes.
- Virgin sauce
In a bowl, add the diced tomatoes, olives, bacon, capers and crushed nuts. Sprinkle in the goat cheese and drizzle in the olive oil until you reach a sauce like consistency. Season with salt and pepper.
Place two scallops in the middle of a plate, add 2 pieces of foie gras and drizzle a little of the virgin sauce on top.
