Fruits Of The Sea

Hello friends;
You all know my love of fresh seafood and scuba diving. Unfortunately time doesn't always permit the later, so it is much appreciated when my mate Paul Morris from Dive Planet drops off some crayfish (lobster) scallops and octopus as he did the other day!
The photo shows the scallops which I simply opened, washed in sea water and drizzled with extra
virgin, cold pressed olive oil, chopped parsley, lemon juice and flaky sea salt(just before serving) Don't be put off by the scallops being raw, they are sweet, delicious and have a firmer texture than oysters.
On the left we have some skate wings and radicchio which were both barbecued and on the right my  octopus salad , a great summer dish.And of course a nice bottle of Pinot Grigio to wash it all down with.
I used the crayfish tails for a nice easy recipe which will be up on the Dive Planet website soon.
Ciao for now.
