Scallop, asparagus and samphire salad

Victim, for some reason, demanded lobster scallops and samphire!  Well, no lobster - managed to find scallops and samphire and fashion this 'ere salad.  It was nice, and the asparagus, new potatoes and samphire went well together - with a bit of zingy garlic and lemon viniagrette - but if I do it again I would add crispy bacon bits instead of the red onion, and perhaps some crispy croutons - and maybe a sweeter dressing with balsamic instead of lemon.

Anyway - steam baby new potatoes for about 15 minutes, asparagus for about 8 and samphire for 3.  Sear scallops in butter.  Dressing lemon juice, olive oil, crushed garlic, salt and pepper.  Salad leaves - rocket and lamb's lettuce.
