Melt-in-your-mouth scallops with this very savory warm salad is sure to delight your palate and keep you coming back for more. I am going to start making the salad by itself to have with other meals or just an egg on top! 


– 2 Tbs olive oil, divided
– 5 oz. sweet Italian chorizo (or your favorite kind)
– 1/2 cup diced onions
– 2 tsp. minced garlic
– slightly charred corn from 4 ears of corn
– 6 cups packed baby spinach
– 1/2 lb. fresh scallops
– salt and pepper

Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add chorizo and cook for 5 minutes. Add the onions and garlic and sauté for 2 more minutes. Stir in kernels of corn (charred or uncharred) and the spinach. When the spinach starts to wilt, remove mixture from skillet to a bowl and set aside. Rinse and pat dry your scallops. Add salt and pepper to the scallops. Add remaining 1 tablespoon of olive oil to the skillet and turn up the heat to high. When skillet is very hot, add scallops and sear 1 to 2 minutes on each side. Serve over warm corn-chorizo salad. Enjoy! If you’d like a printer-friendly version of this recipe, Click Here.
