  • 10 fresh king scallops
  • Half a loaf of sourdough bread
  • 200g Yorkshire Wensleydale
  • 2 red chillies – sliced thinly
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 1 bunch of fresh basil
  • 1 bunch of fresh parsley
  • 2 sprigs of fresh thyme
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 6 black olives – sliced thinly
  • Fresh salad leaves
  • Yorkshire Rapeseed Oil
  • Sea salt


  1. 1. Prepare the marinated Yorkshire Wensleydale a few days in advance to allow the cheese to absorb all the flavours.
  2. 2. Place the fresh parsley, basil and a sprig of thyme into a blender and pulse, emulsifying with alternating splashes of yorkshire Rapeseed oil. Add the lemon juice and season well.
  3. 3. Cut the Yorkshire Wensleydale into cubes and cover in the marinade then keep in the fridge.
  4. 4. Cut the sourdough at interesting angles, brush with Yorkshire Rapeseed oil, thyme and garlic and allow to rest for a few hours.
  5. 5. Bake the sourdough in the oven at 180°C until well coloured. Remove the croutons when still slightly soft and allow to cool.
  6. 6. Dry the scallops thoroughly with a clean towel and season well with sea salt.
  7. 7. Place into a hot pan and sear for 1-3 minutes on each side (depending upon size) and until golden brown.
  8. 8. Bring the marinated Yorkshire Wensleydale to room temperature and spoon the cheese and some of the marinade over the croutons.
  9. 9. Arrange the seared scallops on top and garnish with chilli, sliced black olives and a few fresh salad leaves.
