Anna's Family Kitchen was inspired by my love of food and desire to feed my family healthy, home cooked wholesome meals that are beautifully presented and appealing but don’t require hours of prep in the kitchen.

Scallops with Celeriac, Pancetta and Samphire

Pancetta and scallops are a classic combo – the samphire, earthy celeriac and lemon work really well with the pair.

20 scallops
150g diced pancetta
180g samphire
1 medium celeriac, peeled and cubed
Juice of 2 lemons
2 tbsp olive oil

Heat the olive oil in a pan and add the celeriac. Colour for 8 minutes. Remove to a warm plate and add the pancetta to the pan. Colour for 3 minutes then add the scallops to the pan in a clockwise circle. Colour for 1 minute each side and squeeze over the lemons.
