75g finely diced shallots
1 large or 2 medium oranges, zested
2 tbsp olive oil, plus extra for brushing
180ml orange juice
420ml chicken stock
160ml dry white wine
2 habanero peppers, cut into quarters, stems and veins removed
60ml orange liqueur, such as Grand Marnier
9 large sea scallops rinsed and dried
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
Chopped chives and orange slices, for garnish
1) Cook the shallots and orange zest in 2 tbsp of olive oil over a medium-high heat until they begin to brown. Add the orange juice, stock, wine and habanero slices. Cook over high heat to reduce.

2) Taste often and remove and discard the habaneros when the desired heat is achieved. After the habaneros are removed, add the orange liqueur.

3) Brush the scallops with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Sear the scallops on a grill pan to a slightly under-cooked state, about 3 1/2 minutes per side but watch them closely.

4) Remove the scallops from the grill pan and add them to the thickened orange glaze, tossing to coat well until scallops are cooked to the desired doneness.

5) Smear three clean plates with orange glaze and top each with 3 scallops. Drizzle the scallops with more glaze and garnish with the chives and orange slices.
