Scallop Carpaccio with Blood Orange – recipe notes

Make the most of the blood orange season with this simple and elegant scallop carpaccio that is fit for a romantic dinner or special celebration.

The scallop carpaccio is served raw, so my recommendation is to use fresh, high quality scallops (preferably hand dived). Frozen scallops are not suitable for this dish. If you are hosting a large party, I would recommend to prep the vinaigrette and blood orange segments in advance. You can store them in the fridge for up to two days. However, make sure to take them out and allow enough time to reach room temperature before serving.
