Scallop Sashimi with Pears
A very elegant and flavorful dish with only a few ingredients! The contrast between fresh scallops, wasabi, white soy, and pickled pears is amazing!
It is perfect as a starter or on a seafood platter, and combines perfectly with light and refreshing cocktails, such as gin and tonic, or sake and white wine.
If you can’t find wasabi oil, you can use grated fresh wasabi or horseradish instead.
