Scallop Asparagus Salad

Submitted by: 1BODY1LIFE

Introduction

Great appetizer or light dinner. Restaurant quality! Great appetizer or light dinner. Restaurant quality!
Number of Servings: 4

Ingredients

    Dressing:
    1 1/2 Tbsp sherry vinegar or wine
    1/2 tsp lite salt
    Several grinds of black pepper
    3/4 tsp Dijon mustard
    2 Tbsp. olive oil
    This can be made 4 hours ahead. Whisk before using

    1 1/2 pounds of slim asparagus spears
    40 baby scallops, fresh or frozen
    Olive oil to cover bottom of pan
    salt and pepper to taste
    2 Tbsp. chopped fresh parsley

Directions

Serves 4 people well.

Heat olive oil until very hot and add dry scallops to pan sear until lightly browned - 1 to2 minutes per side should do it. Don't overcook scallops or they become tough. Remove scallops and add asparagus until tender crisp, about 3 to 5 minutes. You can cut asparagus into diagonal pieces or leave long. Return scallops to pan with asparagus and add half the dressing. Salt and pepper to taste. Mound mixed salad greens (I like to add carrots, cabbage, celery, cucumbers, green onions, and spinach) with artichoke hearts on the side. Add the hot scallops and asparagus on top and drizzle remaining dressing on top. Garnish with chopped parsley.

Enjoy!

  • This looks good, but I think the calories and fat content could be a lot lower. Looking at the ingredients used to calculate the nutritional information, it show 3/4 cup of olive oil. I think the whole recipe could be made using about 1/4 of a cup of oil. - 5/18/09

    I may use too much for the cooking part, but it drains off so the calories shouldn't really be counted. Try the recipe and tell me how much you used. It is really a very good recipe for flavor and something different.
