A Legendary Event’s  Seared Scallops on Summer Corn Salad

Serves 4 as an Appetizer or 2 for Dinner

12 – Large Sea Scallops (10-20 size)
Zest of one lime, S&P to taste
Grapeseed Oil or Canola Oil
3 ears of fresh corn
½ small red onion, diced
4 roma tomatoes, seeded and diced
2 scallions, whites and tender green parts
1 jalapeno, seeded and minced
5-6 radishes, thinly sliced
1 avocado, diced
Juice of two limes
Extra Virgin Oil
Salt and pepper to taste
½ bunch cilantro, chopped

Clean scallops and season with lime zest, salt & pepper. Cut kernels from corn, and combine will all other salad ingredients. Heat non-stick or cast iron skillet until you can hold your hand over it for only 4-5 seconds. Add a thin layer of grapeseed oil to cover the bottom of pan. Place scallops in pan and sear until dark golden brown (3-4 minutes); they should release easily from the bottom of the pan. Turn scallops over and continue to cook for an additional 1-2 minutes. Plate corn salad on platter or individual plates, top with seared scallops and serve. You can choose to garnish with additional herbs or popcorn shoots.
