Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr +


  • 1 lime juice
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 6 sea scallops
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 2 carrots, peeled and grated
  • 1 small head frisée lettuce, leaves washed and separated, or 2 cups mesclun
  • 1 shallot, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley or mint leaves
How to Make It
  1. Combine the lime juice, 2 tablespoons of the olive oil, and the salt and pepper in a bowl and stir well. Add the scallops and coat them well. Set aside to marinate for 15 minutes.
  2. Remove the scallops from the marinade. Place a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat and sear the scallops for 2 minutes per side (4 minutes total), adding more oil if necessary. Set them aside.
  3. Whisk the lemon juice with the remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil in a bowl. Add the carrots, frisée, and shallot and toss. Season with salt and pepper. Divide the salad between two dinner plates and place 3 scallops atop each salad. Sprinkle with the parsley and serve.
