Halibut and scallops


Roast cherry tomatoes

For the oven dried cherry tomatoes, preheat the oven to 120˚C/gas mark 1/2. Cut the tomatoes in half and place flesh side up on an oven tray. Combine the salt, pepper and sugar in a bowl and spread the mix evenly over the tomatoes. Leave in the oven for 90 minutes, or until they appear to be a little shrivelled and semi-dried
For the fregola, start by bringing a large pot of salted water to the boil. Once boiling add the fregola and cook for 8-10 minutes, or until al-dente. Strain and stir through all the remaining ingredients, leaving the the fresh parsley and coriander to add before serving
For the halibut and scallops, place a large frying pan on a medium to high heat and pour in some vegetable oil. Once hot, place the halibut in the pan until golden and then turn. Increase the heat and add the scallops to pan, turning after about 1 minute to make sure they have a deep golden colour
Add the lemon juice to the pan and coat the seafood in the bubbling liquid. Remove from the heat, season and leave the fish to cook through
While the fish is finishing in the pan, warm the fregola through and add the fresh parsley and coriander
Place the fregola down the middle of the plate and place the halibut and scallops on top. Garnish with the olives, fennel pollen and tomatoes
