Scallops-Pecans Wilted Salad



  1. Thaw scallops, if frozen. Halve scallops horizontally (about 1/2 inch thick). Rinse scallops; pat dry.
  2. In a dry skillet cook and stir pecans over medium-high heat for 3 to 4 minutes or until toasted. Transfer pecans to bowl; set aside.
  3. Season scallops with salt and black pepper. In the same skillet cook scallops in hot oil over medium-high heat just until golden brown, about 1 to 2 minutes per side. Transfer scallops to bowl with pecans; sprinkle with sesame seeds. Cover; keep warm.
  4. In a bowl toss together arugula and endive. For dressing, in a saucepan combine syrup, soy sauce, and cayenne pepper. Bring to boiling; remove from heat. Toss greens with three-quarters of the warm dressing. Cover with plate for 30 to 60 seconds or until arugula begins to wilt. Toss remainder of dressing with scallop mixture. Divide greens among 4 plates; top with scallop mixture. Makes 4 servings.

From the Test Kitchen

Test Kitchen Tip:

For even cooking in this recipe we halve the scallops horizontally so they will be about 1/2-inch thick.
