This is a fresh and easy recipe for a delicious scallop carpaccio. It only requires a few ingredients and comes together in just 10 minutes. The combination of the raw and silk smooth scallop, together with the creamy avocado cream and the salty fish roe is amazing. I also added some radish and scallion to give it some crunch and a hint of peppery flavor. It’s light and refreshing and everything but boring.
Serve this dish as a starter or as a side dish if you’re making a big dinner with lot of small dishes. I’ve heard from people that they are afraid of serving raw fish and seafood. Don’t be! As long as you buy high quality ingredients and handle them as they should there’s nothing to be worried about. And it’s also such an easy way of using scallops, no need to cook! Just slice them up and add the topping.
