Firing up the grill is one of my favorite activities. I love it even more when I can cook my entire meal over the grill in a matter of minutes. I know, lettuce is not the first thing that comes to mind when you think of cooking out. However, this sweet and smokey salad with grilled radishes and scallops may become your favorite go-to dish. In less than 15 minutes, you will have a delicious meal for two that is perfect for enjoying on your patio with your favorite white wine. Cheers to fast and healthy seasonal meals.
8 large scallops
1 bunch radishes, trimmed and halved
2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
¼ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon pepper
Zest of 1 lemon
1 head romaine lettuce
Salad Dressing Ingredients:
Zest and juice of 1 navel orange
2 teaspoons fresh ginger, minced
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
- Brush scallops and radishes with half the olive oil and season with salt, pepper and lemon zest. Prepare a grill for medium-high heat. Grill scallops and radishes for 2 to 3 minutes per side, until scallops are cooked through and radishes are slightly tender.
- Cut lettuce in half, leaving the core intact on both sides. Brush flat side with remaining olive oil. Place lettuce cut-side down on the grill and cook for about 5 minutes, until grill marks appear and lettuce is slightly wilted.
- In a small bowl, whisk together salad dressing ingredients. Top each lettuce slice with half the scallops and radishes and drizzle with salad dressing.
