Suggestion:

The chewed up can be replaced by 100 g of mesclun.

Tip for easily slicing scallops:

To make it easier to cut, wrap the nuts one at a time in tight plastic wrap and place them in the freezer until they are firm, 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.
