Parsley is often overlooked as a green, but it's terrific in salads, especially the sweet-and-sour one here, with grilled scallops, grapefruit and crunchy fennel. Feel free to pan-fry the scallops instead of grilling them, or use orange instead of grapefruit.

  1. 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  2. 1/2 small shallot, minced
  3. 2 1/2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  4. Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  5. 1 pink grapefruit
  6. 1 large fennel bulb—halved, cored and thinly sliced
  7. 1 cup flat-leaf parsley leaves
  8. 16 sea scallops (about 1 pound), side muscles removed
  1. Light a grill. In a small bowl, pour the lemon juice over the minced shallot and let stand for 5 minutes. Whisk in 2 tablespoons of the olive oil and season the dressing with salt and pepper.
  2. Using a sharp knife, peel the grapefruit, making sure to remove all of the bitter white pith. Working over a medium bowl, cut in between the membranes to release the sections into the bowl. Toss the fennel and parsley with the grapefruit.
  3. Brush the scallops with the remaining 1/2 tablespoon of olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Grill over moderately high heat, turning once, until just cooked through, about 5 minutes.
  4. Toss the dressing with the salad and season with salt and pepper; transfer to plates. Set the scallops on the salads and serve.

Suggested Pairing

Zesty Sauvignon Blanc, such as one from Argentina.
