Meanwhile, place a frying pan over a high heat. Pat the scallops dry with kitchen towel and press each side firmly into the shony seaweed. Add a dash of rapeseed oil to the pan, followed by the scallops, ensuring not to crowd the pan or the scallops will stew and not sear

Cook for 45-60 seconds on each side, being careful not burn the shony or overcook the scallops. Remove from the pan and repeat to cook the remaining scallops
6.
Reheat the broth and whisk through until warm
