Scallop tartare and sea urchin toasts


Any thinly shaved sashimi-grade fish works nicely here in place of the scallop meat.

You'll need

36 thin baguette slices (about baguette), thinly sliced For brushing: olive oil 1 garlic clove, halved 300 gm scallop meat, very thinly sliced 20 gm salted capers, rinsed and coarsely chopped 2 tbsp thinly sliced coriander 1 tsp extra-virgin olive oil, plus extra for brushing To serve: Tabasco and coriander cress   Sea urchin mayo 70 gm sea urchin roe (see note) 2 tbsp lemon juice 150 ml mild-flavoured olive oil

Method

  • 01
  • For sea urchin mayo, blend roe and lemon juice in a small food processor until combined, then with motor running add olive oil in a thin steady stream until emulsified and a thick mayonnaise forms. Season to taste and set aside.
  • 02
  • Preheat a grill to high. Brush baguette slices with olive oil and grill until toasted (1-2 minutes each side), then rub with cut garlic.
  • 03
  • Mix scallop meat, capers and coriander in a bowl, then drizzle with olive oil and season to taste with ground pepper and Tabasco.
  • 04
  • Spoon a little sea urchin mayo onto each toast, then top with scallop mixture and coriander cress and serve.

Note Sea urchin roe is available from select fishmongers. You may need to order it ahead.
