  • 16 scallops
  • 2 courgettes - EN
  • 1 small shallot
  • 10 shelled Maître Prunille hazelnuts
  • 1 cuillère(s) à soupe of crème fraîche - EN
  • 1 cuillère(s) à soupe of brown sugar
  • 3 cuillère(s) à soupe of hazelnut oil
  • 20 g of butter
  • 50 ml of balsamic vinegar
  • Salt
  • Pepper


Step 1

Wash the courgettes, cut off the ends, and slice into tagliatelle using a vegetable peeler.
Blanch the courgettes for several seconds in boiling, salted water and rinse in cold water to retain crunchiness. Drain and place on a plate.

Step 2

Mix together the finely chopped shallots, ground hazelnuts, hazelnut oil, and use this to coat the tagliatelle.

Step 3

Mix together the vinegar and brown sugar, then cook at low heat to obtain a syrupy texture.
Turn off the heat, add in the crème fraîche, and set aside.

Step 4

Fry the scallops for 1 minute on each side.
On each plate, place 3 courgette tagliatelle strips and 4 hazelnuts coated in balsamic vinegar caramel.
