Carpaccio of Saint-Jacques scallops with passion fruit

30 January 2018

Serves 4


Preparation time: 20 minutes

Resting time: 10 minutes



12 good-sized, extra-fresh Saint-Jacques scallops

Fleur de sel

Freshly ground pepper

2 well-ripened passion fruits

A splash of olive oil

Lime zest


Cut the Saint-Jacques scallops into thin slices.

Arrange them, as you go, on to individual plates.

Season the slices carefully as without doing so the Carpaccio can be rather bland

Open up the passion fruits and using a teaspoon, scoop out the juice and flesh on to the scallops

Add a few drops of olive oil and a little lime zest

Leave to marinate for 5 minutes before serving

Now it’s ready!



This very simple Carpaccio can be served with lamb’s lettuce seasoned with a lemon and olive oil dressing.

It is best to add the dressing, the passion fruit and the olive oil just as you serve the scallops.

There’s no need to marinate the scallops for 1 hour before serving.
