Southeast Asian Scallops & Greens

Fresh herbs and Asian flavors add interest to meaty sea scallops. Grilled steak or chicken can easily be substituted for the scallops; or, for a truly quick preparation, use precooked shrimp.

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 2 tablespoon lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
  • 2 teaspoons minced fresh ginger
  • 2 teaspoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 8 ounces dry sea scallops, (see Note)

  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 4 cups mixed salad greens, preferably baby Asian greens
  • 1 small red bell pepper, diced

  • 2 teaspoons sesame seeds, toasted (see Tip)

Cooking Directions

Step 1

Preheat grill to medium-high.

Step 2
