HOW TO MAKE THIS RECIPE
1. Combine olive oil and fresh lemon juice (3:1 ratio); season with salt & pepper and mix well.
2. Arrange the scallops on a plate and garnish with sea urchin, radish and arugula. A generous drizzle of the dressing and sprinkle the chives & sea salt flakes on top.
Alternatively, you can replace the sea urchin, radish & arugula with fish roe/ capers/ caviar/ truffle/ eatable flowers, or just plain sea scallop will do too. Herb-wise, basil/parsley/coriander. For the dressing, you can even try with thai style - shallot, ginger, fish sauce, lime juice, chill, basil and palm sugar; or simply oil with lime juice/ white wine vinegar/ champagne vinegar, etc. whatever you like.
