Pickled seaweed
Avocado purée



1.For pickled seaweed, bring all ingredients (except wakame) and 300ml water to the boil, then remove from heat. Place wakame in a heatproof non-reactive bowl. Pour over hot vinegar mixture. Cool, then refrigerate until required. Remove wakame from liquid, thinly slice and season to taste with salt before serving.
2.For avocado purée, process avocado, buttermilk, lemon juice, paprika, cayenne, rind and a large pinch of salt in a blender until smooth. Check seasoning and refrigerate until required.
3.Preheat grill on medium heat. Splash olive oil over each scallop, then grill until half-cooked (2-3 minutes). Serve warm, topped with shredded pickled seaweed, avocado purée, grated horseradish and lemon rind.
