Submitted By: Steamy Kitchen
20 dry-packed scallops
salad greens - (sweet pea leaves, napa cabbage and bass vines were used in the salad pictured here)
Sweet Vanilla Chili Dressing
1 tablespoon bottled sweet chili sauce (I use Mae Ploy brand)
1 tablespoon tomato ketchup
1 teaspoon olive oil
1/2 teaspoon sesame oil
1 tablespoon sugar
1 tablespoon water
1 tablespoon lime juice
1 teaspoon minced cilantro
1 pod vanilla or 3 drops vanilla extract
Slice open the vanilla pod and scrape out seeds. Combine with the rest of dressing ingredients.
Pat scallops dry. Season with salt and pepper. In hot skillet with cooking oil, sear scallops over high heat for 1-1/2 minutes each side. Remove from heat immediately.
Serve scallops on top of salad greens and Sweet Vanilla Chili Dressing.
