Chipotle Scallops with Green Onions and Lime

Smoky, briny flavors pair with citrus and onions to create the perfect warm-weather dish.


1/4 C canola oil, split
16 scallops
2 tsp. kosher salt
1/2 tsp. black pepper
1 oz. chipotle chile peppers (canned), pureed
Additional chipotle peppers (canned), sliced for garnish
1 lb. Ready-Set-Serve Washed & Trimmed Green Onions
3 Markon First Crop Limes, sliced
Edible petals, to garnish


Season scallops with 1/2 teaspoon of salt and 1/4 teaspoon of pepper. Brush them all with pureed chipotle pepper puree.
Heat two tablespoons of oil a large grill pan. Add scallops and cook for one to two minutes per side, charring surface of the shellfish.
Toss green onions with remaining oil. On a separate grill or pan, cook the green onions until charred. Add sliced limes to pan once onions are removed and cook until grill lines appear.
Arrange all on a large platter for family-style serving or divide into equal portions.


1 bunch Markon First Crop Asparagus, steamed

1/4 C Markon First Crop Basil

2 T Markon First Crop Chervil

2 T C Ready-Set-Serve Lemon Juice

2 cloves Ready-Set-Serve Peeled Garlic

1 tsp. lemon zest

1/4 tsp. cumin

1/4 tsp. coriander

1/4 C extra virgin olive oil

1/2 tsp. kosher salt

1/4 tsp. red pepper flakes

16 large shrimp, cleaned and threaded onto skewers to prevent curling

1 tsp. kosher salt

Olive oil + 2 cloves Ready-Set-Serve Peeled Garlic, for poaching

Edible petals and micro greens for garnish


Slice tips off asparagus and reserve. Add basil, chervil, one cup steamed asparagus stalks, lemon juice, zest, cumin, coriander, salt, pepper flakes, and oil to a food processor and blend until chunky.

Heat oil and garlic until just bubbling. Add shrimp skewers so that shrimp is fully submerged. Reduce heat to a simmer and cook until shrimp is opaque and cooked through. When shrimp are almost cooked, add asparagus tips. Remove all with a slotted spoon and drain on a wire rack.

To plate, arrange tips in a decorative manner. Place shrimp next to asparagus and ladle sauce on top of each one. Garnish with edible petals and micro greens.
