Dressing 

Makes 2 serves 

1 ripe avocado
2 tbsp fresh lime juice

2 – 3 tbsp olive oil or avocado oil

1/2 tsp minced garlic

½ tsp ground cumin.

 

Method 

Make the dressing/base by mashing up 1 ripe avocado and then add the rest of the dressing ingredients and whisk till smooth. You don’t want it too runny. 

Heat some oil in a skillet over medium high heat and add the scallops, cook for 1 minute then turn. Add the cooked shrimps and mussels, cook for 1 minute, turning once. Remove from the heat and lightly season with salt and pepper. 

On two warm plates place 1 tbsp of the avocado dressing in the centre of each and with the back of the teaspoon flatten it out into a small circle.

On one side of the circle place the divided cucumber and tomato then arrange the seafood over the place dressing and serve straight away.
