Chef Paul Gildroy

Cut the potatoes, black pudding and onion into small dice keep separate and slice the garlic. Heat the oil in a heavy based pan and add the potatoes, cook over a moderate heat for five minutes, tossing occasionally.

Add the black pudding, onion and garlic, mix well and place the pan into a preheated oven (gas 7, 210˚C) for around 6-8 minutes.

For the Beurre Blanc, place into a pan the wine, vinegar and shallot and over a moderate heat reduce by two-thirds. Add the butter one piece at a time continually whisking until you have a couple of pieces left then remove the pan from the heat. Whisk in the final couple of pieces of butter and the sauce should thicken, set aside. For the Scallops, pre-heat a pan and add a little oil and then from the top side of

the pan place in the scallops one by one. Cook over a moderately high heat for 2 minutes then turn over and cook for a further 1 minute. To serve, place a good spoonful of the black pudding hash onto each plate, sit on the scallops and then pour over the Beurre Blanc, finish with chopped parsley.
