Serves: 4 • Time to Prepare: 30 min.


1/2 cup olive oil
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1 tbsp. crushed garlic
1 tbsp. chopped basil
8 cups mixed field greens
1 large mango
8 large sea scallops
8 large shrimp (peeled and deveined, tail off)
  black pepper to taste
  sea salt to taste


Combine olive oil, balsamic vinegar, garlic, basil and pepper to taste in a small bowl. Whisk well and put in fridge. Rinse shrimp and scallops with cold water, then put in a large bowl and drizzle some olive oil over top. Season with salt and pepper to taste and mix well. Cut mango into strips and set aside in bowl.

Preheat grill on medium heat. Place scallops and shrimp on grill. Scallops should go on first as they take slightly longer to cook. Grill scallops for about 10 minutes and the shrimp for about 8 minutes.

Place 2 cups or field greens on plate and cover with a few mango slices. Top with shrimp and scallops and drizzle dressing over top.
