Ingredients

Marinade:

Directions

Carefully clean scallops of any roe, muscle, or brown connective tissue, which can become tough when marinated. Cut scallops into 1/4-inch horizontal slices.

Combine marinade ingredients in a small bowl. Add scallops and toss to coat. Marinate, covered, in refrigerator 5 minutes or as long as a half hour. (Any longer and the acid in the lime juice would overcook the seafood.)

Meanwhile prepare Watercress and Avocado Salad, reserving avocados.

To serve, divide dressed watercress salad among 6 serving plates. Arrange a circle of scallops in center of each and garnish with avocado slices along the side. Spoon leftover marinade over scallops and avocado. Serve cold.
