Grilled scallops are almost ludicrously fast and easy, and their texture and flavor complement the greens and the dressing. But you could also use shrimp, steak or boneless chicken -- preferably thighs, which have better flavor than breasts and are less likely to dry out over the grill's heat. Whichever you choose, you could also cook it on top of the stove in a grill pan or a regular skillet.

Recipe Ingredients for Triple Sesame Salad With Scallops

1/4 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup rice wine or other vinegar
2 tablespoons sesame tahini or smooth peanut butter
1 tablespoon sesame oil
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
1 tablespoon honey
1/2 teaspoon garlic, peeled and chopped
1 teaspoon ginger, peeled and chopped
1 1/2 pounds sea scallops
1 Salt
600 g mesclun blend, washed and dried
1/4 cup basil, washed and dried, optional
2 tablespoons toasted sesame seeds

Recipe Directions for Triple Sesame Salad With Scallops

  1. Prepare a gas or charcoal grill. Place soy, vinegar, tahini, sesame oil, red pepper, honey, garlic and ginger in a blender, and blend until smooth. When grill is hot, sprinkle scallops with salt and grill about 2 minutes a side; they should remain tender and undercooked in the middle.

  2. Combine greens and basil, and divide among 4 plates. When scallops are done, place them on top of the greens. Drizzle with dressing, sprinkle with sesame seeds and serve.
