Ingredients

  • 1 head Boston lettuce washed, dried, and ripped into bite-sized pieces
  • ½ lb crab claw meat
  • ½ lb sea scallops
  • 10 jumbo cocktail shrimp
  • 1 sweet potato boiled and diced
  • ½ large ripe papaya peeled, seeded, and diced
  • 1 avocado peeled, pitted, and diced
  • 1 lemon sliced
  • ¼ cup pumpkin seeds

Dressing

  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 2 tbsp lime juice
  • 4 green onions minced
  • ½ tsp ground ginger
  • ¼ tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp brown sugar optional
  • Salt and black pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Fill a pot with water and lemon slices. Bring to a boil and add the scallops until cooked through. This should be very quick, only until they lose their translucence and turn opaque, then run them under cold water to cool. 
    Note: For purposes of authenticity, the scallops in this recipe are boiled. However, boiling scallops doesn't normally accentuate their flavor, so you can also pan sear them in olive oil and then chill them before adding to the salad. 
  • Combine the dressing ingredients together.
  • Assemble the seafood and produce over a bed of lettuce, and drizzle with dressing. Enjoy!
