Seared scallops & chorizo

Heat the butter and 1 tbsp olive oil in a frying pan over a medium heat. Add the chorizo and cook, tossing until it starts to brown, about 1 minute. Add the scallops and sear them for about 1 min until golden, then flip them over and sprinkle over the garlic and chopped fresh red chilli into the pan. Cook for about 1 min more, then squeeze over the juice of the lime. Finish off with roughly chopped coriander and salt and pepper.
