This scallop crudo recipe gets a flavorful addition with shaved truffles. To make thinly slicing the scallops easier, freeze them until they are firm but not frozen, about 20 minutes, and then slice.

  • Thinly slice scallops and arrange, slightly overlapping, on a plate. Spoon the vinaigrette over the scallops. Garnish with microgreens and shaved truffle, if desired. Serve immediately.

Tips

Tips: Truffle paste has a tapenade-like texture that mixes easily into sauces, vinaigrettes and stir-fries. Truffle oil is best used at room temperature or slightly warm for the best flavor. Look for both at well-stocked grocery stores and specialty markets.
To shave fresh truffles, use a truffle slicer, a mandoline or a vegetable peeler.
