We liked the sound of the Scallop and Black Pudding Salad by Chef Eddie Shaw of The Pipers Tryst in Glasgow, so we gave it a go!
We substituted cucumber and tomatoes for salad, as we didn't have any. Crisp and fluffy potatoes with moist black pudding and tender scallop. Even Fred waited by for a sneaky piece of scallop.
