Tip for easy slicing of scallops :

To make cutting easier, place the nuts one by one in a tightly wrapped plastic film and place them in the freezer until they are firm, for about 30 minutes.

Take the scallops out of the freezer and quickly cut them into very, very thin slices with a sharp knife. Arrange the thin slices directly on the serving plate.
