Scallop, Leek and Chorizo Gratin
This is a lovely, easy way to prepare scallops, which work beautifully with the punchy chorizo and creamy leeks. If you have little individual ceramic dishes, by all means use those for smart presentation. Though if your date isn’t impressed by a giant dish of crunchy-topped gratin brought to the table as it is, you may wish to rethink your dinner companion.
