Smoked scallops

It's been a while since I smoked foods.    Last time, a supplier said they just got some gigantic scallops and so I decided to smoke these giant beauties again.  This time I used apple wood to smoke them. They came out marvelous after cold smoking for 30 minutes and I served them with a yuzu jelly and mandarine.

Scallops

I haven't done anything marinated and raw in a long time and so I infused some lemon olive into japanese scallops. To finish it,  I made some yuzu jelly from a japanese style yuzu salad dressing and put a few spoonfuls on the scallops. The marinated mini tangerine peel was diced and sparingly sprinkled on top.   They were really good but perhaps a little cold smoking the scallops would have made it better.
