This year, Mum got absolutely everything she asked for for her birthday dinner: scallops, prawns nad merignues. Lucky girl.
The recipe for scallops with hazelnut butter was taken from the BBC website. I love James Martin’s recipes. This one had a lot of fiddling around with ingredients, but it was worth it – the hazelnut butter was lovely. However, I reckoned I ended up with twice as much butter as I needed, so I’m saving it for serving with some prawns over the Festive period.
The pasta recipe was simple and delicious: cooked pasta with cooked king prawns, finely chopped parsley, lemon zest and cream mixed through – then the whole thing heated through until warm. Delicious.
The meringues were super simple: top meringue nest with; whipped cream, sweetened with vanilla sugar; raspberries; and passion fruit seeds.
