Grilled Sea Scallops with Grilled Romaine and Citrus Salad

Grilled Sea Scallops with Grilled Romaine and Citrus Salad




Our Blackened Organic Seafood Seasoning creates a caramelized sear on these succulent scallops, while lightly charred romaine introduces salad to the goodness of grilling.


For the Grilled Scallops:

  • 20 large sea scallops (approximately 3 pounds)
  • 1 tablespoon Frontier® Blackened Organic Seafood Seasoning
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

For the Grilled Romaine Salad:

  • 2 hearts of romaine, washed and dried
  • 112 tablespoons olive oil
  • 112 teaspoons red wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon Frontier® dried oregano
  • 12 teaspoon Frontier® salt
  • 14 teaspoon Frontier® ground black pepper

For the Dressing:

  • 1 orange, segmented
  • 1 grapefruit, segmented
  • 1 avocado, pit removed and sliced
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 tablespoon fresh cilantro, minced
  • 1 teaspoon Frontier® Kosher salt
  • Frontier® ground black pepper, to taste


  1. Preheat your grill. Real wood charcoal tastes best, but gas works fine. Avoid instant-light briquettes as they make food taste like lighter fluid. Aim for medium-high heat – if your grill lid has a thermometer built into the lid, it should read about 375 degrees.
  2. Pat scallops dry and toss in a bowl with 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Coat with Blackened Organic Seafood Seasoning.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together 112 tablespoons olive oil, red wine vinegar, dried oregano, 12 teaspoon salt and 14 teaspoon black pepper.
  4. Cut the romaine hearts in half lengthwise and brush with vinaigrette.
  5. Grill the romaine, cut side down, for 2 minutes, until it starts to brown. Flip and cook for another 1 to 2 minutes to get some color on it. Transfer to a plate.
  6. Grill scallops for 3 minutes. Using tongs, flip the scallops and cook for an additional 1 to 2 minutes, depending on the size of the scallops. Set them aside on a plate.
  7. In a bowl, whisk together the honey, lime juice, cilantro, 1 teaspoon Kosher salt and 12 teaspoon black pepper until combined.
  8. To make the salad, plate each romaine wedge and top with citrus segments and sliced avocado. Drizzle dressing over salad.
  9. Add 5 scallops to each plate next to the salad and serve.
