1 long red chilli
1 tbls fish sauce
1 tbls lime juice

Pound marinade ingredients in mortar and pestle to make a paste. Marinate scallops and refrigerate for 2 hours.
Heat pan and lightly oil. Sear scallops score side down and cook for 1 minute on each side depending on size. Remove from pan and rest for 30 seconds. Whilst resting, squeeze lime juice into pan to thin out marinade.
Serve each scallop on top of a teaspoon of marinade. Season with a little salt and top with coriander flower.
