    Finely julienne the onion, radishes and carrot and soak in ice cold water in a separate bowl for 1 hour.

    Slice the buns in half and lightly toast them on the BBQ grills. Place a generous spoonful of Asian coleslaw on the bottom of each bun.

  • 9.

    Oil the hot plate and season the sea scallops with sea salt. Sear the sea scallops for no more than 1 minute on each side.

  • 10.

    Place the sea scallop on top of the coleslaw, add a small amount of chili sauce on top of the scallop and a small bunch of mustard cress.

  • 11.
