I made this salad a while ago. It had been on my list of posts to share for quite some time. This list is getting longer and longer…might that be cause I cook too much?
Spinach salad with scallops marinated in lemon juice, sesame oil and Italian herbs mix…Can it get better than that?
If yes, tell me how!!!
It’s a grey, rainy day in Shanghai, hope this will bring to you some positive energy 🙂
Ingredients (serves 2):
- Fresh Baby spinach
- 8 big scallops
- 2 tbsp sesame oil
- 2 tsp salt
- 1 lemon
- 1 tbsp Italian herbs mix
- 2 tbsp pine-nuts
- 2 tbsp olive oil
Start by rinsing the scallops
then season them with the juice of half a lemon
Italian herbs mix, salt and pepper
and the sesame oil
Stir around and let it marinate overnight or for at least 3 hours
In a skillet cook the scallops with their marinate juice until they get a nice golden-brown color.
Don’t eat them yet! Don’t!
Meanwhile wash the baby spinach and lay them on a plate
Add the scallops and pine-nuts
then in a bowl combine olive oil, salt and the juice of the remaining half lemon, stir around then pour onto your salad.
Now you can enjoy!
