Scallops and Langoustines, broad beans and saffron hollandaise

Serves 6

6 scallops
12 langoustines
50 g butter
salt, pepper
500 g broad beans (skinned)

For the hollandaise
2 tbsp white wine vinegar
2 tbsp water
A pinch of saffron
2 yolks
100 g salted butter (cut into dice)
juice of half a lemon
pepper

1 Cook the langoustines 3 min in boiling salted water.

2 Prepare the hollandaise. Boil water and vinegar with saffron for 1 minute.
Place the pan in a bain-marie. Whisk the yolks and add them to the liquid.
Don’t stop whisking. Remove from gas and add the butter, dice by dice.
Finish with lemon juice and pepper. Keep warm.

3 Melt butter in a frying-pan. Sauté the scallops one minute on each face.
Do the same with the langoustines. Place the shellfish on warm plates.
Deglaze the pan with a touch of whisky and pour a few drops on the scallops.

4 Spoon the hollandaise round the shellfish. Add the broadbeans and a sprig of chervil.
