1 pound fresh sea scallops, cut into 1/4- to 1/2-inch dice
2 plums, pitted and cut into
1/4- to 1/2-inch dice
1 to 2 teaspoons chopped fresh tarragon, or more to taste*
1/4 cup freshly squeezed lime juice
1/2 teaspoon grated lime zest
Pinch cayenne pepper
1. In a bowl, toss together scallops, plums, tarragon, lime juice and zest. Season with salt and cayenne. Let mixture sit at room temperature for
about 15 minutes.
2. Taste and adjust seasoning.
3. Serve and enjoy!
*We actually used fresh mint because our local grocery store was out of fresh tarragon – the result was delicious, but we still want to try the tarragon that the original recipe calls for!
