Before you start

Only the freshest scallops should be used for this dish.

If eating raw shellfish makes you nervous, you may first simmer the scallops in boiling water until they are firm and not quite cooked through, about 2 min. Remove them using a slotted spoon, then run under cold water to chill. Toss with olive oil, cover and refrigerate until ready to marinate.


  1. Cook the quinoa. Let stand in the refrigerator at least 1 h.
  2. Meanwhile, toss the scallops, onion, mini-tomatoes, chili pepper and lime juice in a bowl. Let sit 15 min at room temperature, or up to 2 hours in the refrigerator.
  3. In a pot of salted boiling water, cook the edamame 3-4 min, until just tender. Drain and set aside.
  4. When ready to serve, prepare the vegetables : grate the carrots, dice the celery, slice the avocado, thinly slice the cabbage, and chop the green onions. Transfer them to a salad bowl, with the quinoa, edamame and arugula. In a small bowl, mix the olive oil, lemon juice and mustard, then drizzle over the salad. Adjust the seasoning, then toss.
  5. Transfer the quinoa salad to serving bowls. Put the scallop mixture on top. Garnish with cilantro and serve.
