  3. Season to taste with a few grinds of sea salt and black pepper.
  4. Double the recipe when you want an ample amount of vinaigrette.

  9. Stir-fry for 2 to 3 minutes until tender.
  10. Grind some sea salt and black pepper over the vegetables and remove from the sauté pan to a bowl.
  11. Sautéed Scallops.
  12. Season the scallops with a few grinds of sea salt and black pepper.
  13. Add 1 tablespoon of oil to sauté pan, let heat, and then add the scallops, making sure there is space between them.
  14. Sear them for 2 to 3 minutes, or until done to your liking.
  15. Now place some of the stir-fried vegetables in the center of each four plates.
  16. Place six scallops on top of the vegetables and spoon the lime-sesame vinaigrette over the scallops and around the plate.
