You want to impress someone special? What about cooking something extraordinary tasteful? Maybe I am a bit enhanced by this recipe since it was the first thing my boyfriend has cooked for me (yes, we are still together). But the combination of scallops, vanilla and sauerkraut really is amazing (it even has a proven aphrodisiac effect). Try it out and I hope it brings you as much luck as it did bring us!

DSC_0742 1. What you need for two:

  • 6 fresh scallops
  • 2 portions of sauerkraut (I use a jar of ready-made sauerkraut)
  • 1 vanilla bean, split and seeds removed
  • lemon zest of one lemon
  • 1 cup of sugar
  • 1/2 cup of butter
  • 1 cup of cream
  • a sip of champagne
  • some chives for decoration


2. To caramelise the sauerkraut, bring the sugar and most of the butter to the boil on medium heat until you have a golden caramel. Then deglaze with a sip of champagne.


3. Wash sauerkraut and put it into the caramel, stir. Add the vanilla bean, vanilla seeds, the lemon zests and the cream and let steep on low heat.


4. Meanwhile season scallops and put them with the rest of the butter in a hot pan and jiggle them until they are golden brown. Arrange the scallops around the sauerkraut on a plate and decorate with chives. Bon appétit!
