Ingredients to make a perfect scallop carpaccio with citrus and basil (2 people)
- 400 grams of scallops (4-6 depending on size)
- 1 orange
- 1 pink grapefruit
- 4 basil leaves
- 60 grams of olive oil
- salt and pepper to taste
Place scallops in the freezer for 15-20 minutes to freeze slightly. This method will allow you to slice thinner and more easily. Place each slice on the plate.
In a bowl place the olive oil, salt and pepper. Wash the oranges and grapefruit, remove the zest using a grater and add into the bowl. Remove the peel of citrus fruits, collect the pulp and juice. Add the juice into the bowl along with the chopped basil. With this mixture in the bowl, brush generously onto the plates. This mixture will naturally cook the slices of the scallop. Add the citrus fruits to plates.
