Carpaccio of Saint-Jacques scallops with passion fruit
30 January 2018
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
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.
