Use large raw de-veined shrimp and large sea scallops for best results. Pat the shrimp and scallops dry with kitchen paper and season with salt and pepper.

Heat the olive oil in a large pan. Add the scallops flat side down and cook without moving until golden brown on one side. Turn the scallop over and cook for a further 1-2 minutes. Transfer to a bowl.

Add the butter and melt over medium heat. Sauté the shallots for five minutes and then add the sun-dried tomatoes and garlic. Add the lemon juice, cook for a further two minutes then lower the heat.

Stir in the cream and bring to a low simmer (add a splash of stock or a little dry white wine if the sauce is too thick for your liking). Add the shrimp and scallops back to the pan.

Add the chopped spinach, stirring it in until it wilts. I sometimes use chard or baby kale in this recipe. Stir in the grated Parmesan, if using, until it melts into the creamy sauce.

Tear the basil leaves and stir into the sauce. Taste and season with salt and pepper as needed. Sprinkle with the lemon zest and serve.
