Grilled Sea Scallops with a Watermelon Three-Way and Dandelion Greens
Celebrity chef Anne Burrell gives us the latest seafood dish!
Anne’s Sea Scallops with a Watermelon Three-Way and Dandelion Greens is the perfect dish for summer. Change up your dinner menu with this refreshing seafood recipe.

Ingredients
1-pound wedge watermelon
1 cup champagne or white wine vinegar
2 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons kosher salt, plus more for seasoning
Pinch of crushed red pepper
8 large sea scallops
2 to 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, plus more as needed
1 watermelon radish (about the size of a kiwi), peeled and julienned
1 cup dandelion greens, cut into 1/2 inch-wide ribbons
1/2 small red onion, thinly sliced

Directions
Yield: 4 servings
Serving size: 1/4 of recipe

1 – Carefully cut the rind off the watermelon. Using a mandolin or a sharp vegetable peeler, shave the rind into wide ribbons about 1/8 inch thick. In a large bowl, combine the vinegar, sugar, salt, and red pepper. Add the watermelon rind ribbons and let stand at room temperature for at least an hour (BTW – this can totally be done yesterday).

2 – Meanwhile, dice the watermelon flesh into 1/2-inch pieces and reserve.

3 – When the watermelon pickles are done, heat the grill.

4 – Brush the scallops with olive oil and season with salt. Place on the grill and cook until grill marks appear, about 1 minute, then rotate the scallops 90 degrees and let the grill marks develop in the other direction (what you’re going for here are those lovely crosshatch grill marks!). Turn the scallops over and repeat; the scallops are done when they’re no longer translucent, about 2 minutes each side.

5 – While the scallops cook, drain the rind pickles, reserving their liquid. Toss the reserved watermelon, the rind pickles, watermelon radish, dandelion greens, and red onion together in a large bowl. Dress the salad with 2 tablespoons of the pickling liquid and some olive oil. TASTE! Adjust seasonings and dressing if needed.

6 – Arrange the deliciously dressed salad in a tall pile just off the center of the four salad plates. Cut the scallops equatorially (through the middle, like the equator) and lay the disks slightly overlapping, grill side up, on the salad. Drizzle with a little olive oil.
