scallopsA special Foodie Friday as we have Valentines next week, an evening which allows everyone to spend a little extra on their evening meal if they, like us, will be dining in this year. I have been sent In The Mood for Entertaining by Jo Pratt to review and it is a fabulous collection of different menu suggestions for every kind of cooking moment, be it a Saturday night tete a tete, a Boy’s Night In or even Fine Dining. There is an amazing choice of recipes to choose from, so many it took me a fair while to nail it down to my final menu choice.

I have decided on Filet Steak for our main course which will be served with a black pepper sauce, Baked Salt Spiced Chips (p52) and Garlic and Mustard Seed Green Beans (p167) but today the recipe I am going to show you from Jo’s book is Seared Scallops with Smoky Leeks and Orange Butter, which I’ll serve as a delicious starter.
