Serves/Makes: 6


  • 10 sea scallops
  • 2 teaspoons sherry vinegar
  • 6 mushrooms, cleaned and sliced
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic, peeled (if using wooden salad bowl)
  • 4 ounces mesclun (French mixture of young greens)

How to cook Saint-Jacques Tartines:
  • Pour 1 teaspoon of the vinegar over the mushrooms. Rinse the scallops, pat dry, and season with salt and pepper to taste.
