It is very hot here about now. This made a nice refreshing dinner for a summer evening. I used bay scallops and other than that followed the recipe as written. I did grate some fresh parmesan cheese over the top right before serving. Thanks for a wonderful dish!

Very simple recipe to make but has a great contrast of flavours with the fresh herbs. The mint I think adds great freshness to the pepper flavour of the arugula. I did not use any cilantro this time but I will do this again and add cilantro and maybe some finely sliced chilli. Great easy recipe.
