Preparation

  1. Brush any dirt off of the mushrooms. Cut the stalk into scallop-thick slices. Sauté on a hot pan with a bit of extra virgin olive oil. Season with sea salt and black pepper and cook until the edges are golden brown, approximately 2 minutes on each side.
  2. Rinse and drain the cashews and add them to a blender along with the other ingredients. Blend until completely smooth and pour into a dish. Place the Scallop Royale on top whilst still warm, crush some black pepper over it, and garnish with dill.
