Sven Fish — Flounder and Peruvian Bay Scallops

I have a new preferred fish supplier recently — Sven Fish. The convenience is unmatched, and the quality and selection are very good. Yesterday is a good example of why I like them.

I ordered my fish online before midnight last night, and it was delivered early this afternoon at my back door — without charge. I chose two items: (1) flounder fillets, and (2) Peruvian Bay Scallops, one pound of each. The seafood is vacuum packed and delivered in an ice-filled cooler. I made two dishes: Broiled Flounder with Lemon Curry Butter, and Bay Scallop Crudo with Gochugaru pepper flakes, Slovenian Sea Salt, Lime Juice, and Ligurian olive oil.

I finished the dish by slicing Radicchio di Treviso and placing it in the hot oven with the remaining fish liquid and olive oil.

A slice of Peasant Bread toast, rubbed with sliced tomato — Pan con Tomate style — was just perfect.

A glass of 2018 Ayunta Etna Bianco was a perfect match.

I bought the bay scallops with another dish in mind, but my first choice was a crudo, inspired by The Kimchi Chronicles, featuring Jean-Georges Vongarichten and his wife.

The dish called for sea scallops, but I adapted it for the smaller cape scallops.

The addition of finely-sliced basil and lemon verbena worked very well with the sea salt, lemon juice, olive oil, and chili flakes

The wine was another gustatory triumph, the 2016 i Clivi Brazan Friulano, which was delicious with the crudo.
