M & M RichardsonThis recipe comes from the web site of M & M Richardson - they sell fresh fish straight to your door. What I love about this is it gives you the opportunity to buy fresh produce.

This is how they describe themselves:

We are a family owned fresh fish supplier situated on the Dungeness Point in Kent, England. We have been an established name in the area for over one hundred and fifty years. Our fresh fish is caught from the premier fishing grounds in the English Channel, by local Dungeness boats.

Delivery - all our products are freshly packed and delivered express next day delivery, Tuesday to Friday, to your home or bussiness.

Preparation - all our fish are cleaned, gutted and inspected at sea, to ensure that you only recieve the finest produce, which we can prepare and fillet to your own requirements.


1 1/4 pounds sea scallops
1 clove garlic, minced
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup lime juice
1/4 cup green onions, finely chopped
1 teaspoon grated lime zest
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper, freshly ground
1/8-1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/4 cup fresh mint, chopped
1 ripe avocado, diced lettuce


  • In a covered saucepan, gently poach scallops with garlic, vegetable oil and water for 3 to 4 minutes, turning once.
  • Using a slotted spoon, remove scallops to a ceramic or glass bowl.
  • Rapidly boil down liquid in a pan to about 1/4 cup. Cool and combine this liquid with remaining ingredients, except avocada and lettuce.
  • Pour over scallops in bowl. Refrigerate for 1 to 2 hours.
  • Just before serving, peel and dice avocado. Toss gently with the scallops.
  • Serve on the lettuce garnished with additional mint sprigs.
