Grilled Scallop Avocado Salad Recipe of the Week

Rick Oruch - Thursday, February 14, 2019

Grilled Scallop and Avocado Salad

Ingredients:

1½ Tbsp achiote paste, crumbled or 1 Tbsp smoked paprika

1 orange, juiced

2 limes, juiced

1 medium garlic clove, minced

¾ cup extra-virgin olive oil

Pinch sea salt and freshly ground black pepper

12 large sea scallops

2 avocados, halved, pitted and flesh cut into quarters

2 Tbsp sugar

6 cups mixed baby greens

1 red grapefruit, peeled and segmented

Instructions:

  1. To make the marinade, place the achiote paste (or smoked paprika), orange and lime juice, garlic, oil, salt and pepper in a medium bowl and whisk until smooth.  Reserve ¼ cup of the marinade in a small bowl.
  2. Add the scallops to the bowl with the marinade. Cover and refrigerate for up to 30 minutes. Remove the scallops from the marinade and pat dry with paper towels.  Discard the marinade.  Coat a large heavy skillet with olive oil and put over medium-high heat.  Add the scallops in a single layer.  Cook until golden on 1 side, about 2 minutes, depending on size.  Turn and brown on the other side, another 2 minutes.  Drain on paper towels and set aside to cool slightly.
  3. Coat the bottom of a small, nonstick skillet over medium heat, with olive oil.  Sprinkle 1 side of the avocado slices with sugar, and salt and pepper, to taste.  Add them to the skillet and cook until the sugar is caramelized and golden, about 2 minutes.  Turn gently and cook for another 30 seconds.  Remove to a plate and set aside. 
  4. Put the baby lettuce in a bowl with half of the grapefruit segments.  Add the reserved ¼ cup of marinade and toss until coated.
  5. To serve, put the dressed lettuce on individual lettuce plates.  Top with the caramelized avocados, remaining grapefruit segments and scallops.  Serve additional vinaigrette on the side.
