Step by step

Salt the scallops being careful not to add too much

The recipe calls for the addition of seeds from a vanilla pod; if don’t have one to hand, don’t substitute with those classic vials used for cake-making; use instead a little oil flavoured with vanilla which you can make yourself at home and keep for other occasions. Another piece of advice: always keep a bottle of brandy or cognac at home which will be very handy for making fish or seafood recipes!
In order to allow the scallops to reproduce, in Italy the law prohibits fishing and the sale of scallops when they are smaller than 10 cm in diameter. So, if you find very small scallops in your fishmongers, you should be suspicious!
