Wash produce before use
Make the chile-lime sauce
- Finely chop, press, or grate enough garlic to measure ½ teaspoon [1 tsp].
- Coarsely chop the cilantro.
- If using the jalapeño, remove the stem, ribs, and seeds; thinly slice the jalapeño. Wash your hands after handling.
In a small bowl, stir together the chile-lime sauce base, garlic, cilantro, and as much jalapeño as you like. Season to taste with salt.
Make the slaw
- Using your hands or a sharp knife, peel the orange. Cut the fruit crosswise into ¼-inch-thick slices or see Chef’s Tip on supreming. Discard any seeds.
- Using the bottom of a bowl or cup, lightly crush the cashews.
- Strip the mint leaves from the stems; coarsely chop the leaves.
In a medium bowl, stir together the slaw dressing base and 2 tablespoons [¼ cup] oil. Add the orange, cashews, mint, and cabbage and toss to coat. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
Prep and cook the seafood
For salmon or halibut:
- Pat the fish dry with a paper towel (if using king salmon, cut in half crosswise); season generously with salt and pepper.
In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the fish (skin side down for the salmon) and cook until lightly browned (and the salmon skin is crisp), 4 to 5 minutes. Turn and cook until the flesh is opaque and flaky, 2 to 4 minutes.
- Rinse and drain the scallops. Pat dry on a paper-towel-lined plate. Season lightly with salt.
In a large frying pan over high heat, warm 2 teaspoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the scallops and cook without turning until golden brown on one side and starting to turn opaque, 2 to 4 minutes. Turn and continue cooking for about 30 seconds for translucent or 1 to 2 minutes for opaque.
Transfer the seafood and slaw to individual plates. Top the seafood with as much chile-lime sauce as you like and serve any remaining sauce on the side.
- Press the garlic (if you have a press).
- Peel the orange by hand.
- Crush the cashews.
- Strip the mint leaves.
- Assemble the slaw.
