For a light and elegant Brazilian-style meal, chef Claude Troisgros layers thin slices of scallops and fresh hearts of palm into a Napoleon and then tops it with a tucupi (fermented yuca water) vinaigrette and tapioca caviar (tapioca pearls).
Place a slice of scallop on each plate. Add a slice of the heart of palm to each plate. Repeat in alternating layers three times, stacking the slices of scallop and heart of palm, finishing with heart of palm. In a small bowl, combine the ingredients for the tucupi vinaigrette with a spoon. Drizzle the tucupi vinaigrette on top of the scallop and heart of palm stacks. Finish with a nice spoon of the tapioca caviar.
