From Beast to Beauty Part 2

A Devon Hogs Pudding might not win any beauty contests, it’s a cooked but not browned pork sausage packed with Groats, (oats used in Devon) with lots of pepper. It’s a traditional pudding that I’d not tried until recently, and is usually sliced and fried as part of a Fry Up to be proud of.

Although there is a great case for using food ingredients where you would expect, it’s also worth mixing things up to find new combinations. Scallops and black pudding are such an unexpected combination, porky savouryness and sweet juicy scallops.

Here’s the westcountry version, the same juicy scallops but the nutty porkiness of the hogs pudding.

Scallops on a Devon Hogs Pudding and Samphire Raft 

Heat a little olive oil in a frying pan, and brown off slices of hogs pudding on a medium high heat, don’t be alarmed if you hear a popping sound, this is the groats heating up and expanding. Once they are lovely and crispy brown on both sides, andplace on your serving plate.

Pop in one scallop per pudding slice in the pan, along with a handful of samphire, a good squeeze of lemon and a pinch of sea salt and coarse ground black pepper.  Brown the scallops quickly on both sides, remove the samphire and place a few strands on each pudding, followed by a scallop and a squeeze of lemon.

Great with some ice cold bone dry cider.
