Scallops and Calamari on a Plancha

6 Apr


This lunch was inspired by Tiv Taam (Ramat HaHayal) seafood counter. We know we wanted some calamari for our lunch but when we saw the scallop on the display we could not resist the temptation.

We have decided to sear the calamari on the plancha and serve it on top of toasted bread, yogurt and spicy tomato salad.

Spicy tomato salad

We cut the bread to thick slices and toasted them on a Stripes Pan which is also kind of a plancha.



The calamari was  seared on the plancha. We seared it in a few rounds of small portions in order to keep the pan hot all the time.


We bought only 4 Scallops and we fried them with a bit of olive oil, coarse sea salt and pepper on a hot pan.



When arranging our plates we spreaded the yogurt over the toast bread and placed above a small portion of the tomato salad and calamari. Next to it we served two scallops each with few drops of lemon.
