Spinach & Frisée Salad with Tangerines & Coriander-Crusted Scallops

http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/scallop_tangerine_salad.html

From EatingWell:  March/April 2010

The flavors of coriander and tangerine complement the sweet scallops in this easy-to-make dinner salad. Frisée has a big flavor and a sturdy texture, which stands up to the warm scallops. If you can’t find frisée, make your own mix of greens; escarole and curly endive are great ones to include.

4 servings | Active Time: 30 minutes | Total Time: 30 minutes

Ingredients

Tangerine Vinaigrette

Salad

Preparation

  1. To prepare vinaigrette: Whisk olive oil, tangerine (or orange) zest and juice, vinegar, shallot, herbs, mustard, salt and pepper in a medium bowl.
  2. To prepare salad: Combine spinach, frisée and tangerine (or orange) segments in a large salad bowl. Add the vinaigrette and toss to coat. Divide the salad among 4 plates.
  3. Coarsely grind or chop coriander seeds and combine with kosher salt and pepper in a small bowl. Sprinkle on both sides of scallops. Heat canola oil in a large cast-iron or nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until shimmering but not smoking. Add the scallops and cook until they develop a golden brown crust and are just opaque all the way through, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Serve the scallops on the salad.
