Crudo means raw in Italian, and in this elegant dish, raw scallops play the starring role. Served with two different citrus flavors (lemon and orange), mint, pepper, and a dash of olive oil, its most basic flavors are on full display. Present each serving in a martini glass for a truly dignified treat.
Pro tip: This recipe calls for Meyer lemons, which are sweeter and less acidic than other varieties, but any kind of lemon will work.
