I had been to M&S to pick up an easy vegetarian or fish dinner for one, this was impossible! Nearly everything in their ‘easy meal’ wise was meaty, or most definitely for two, I suppose I could have frozen half but I wasn’t in the right frame of mind.
So instead I picked up a small bag of spinach and some scallops, and figured it would be a very light meal for one, dependant on what was to be found in my fridge.
I was in luck there were some oyster mushrooms in the fridge, a small amount of double cream, white wine and therefore, in my head anyway, a side dish with sauce.
Add the oyster mushrooms to a pan with a knob of butter allow and cook for a few mins, add a dash of cream and a splash of white wine and simmer.
Meanwhile heat some oil in a frying pan and put this on the heat.This is for your scallops. Put the spinach in a pan with a splash of water and add this to the heat too. Put your scallops into the pan in a clockwise order, 12:00, 2:00, 4:00, 6:00, 8:00, 10:00, after 1min turn the scallops over in clockwise order for another 1min.
Now add your spinach to your plate, top with scallops and then pour the mushroom and cream sauce. Here you have a very fast yet tasty meal, but this way you can be more prepared than me, and know what you’re having in advance.
