Recipe Summary



For the Peas, Radishes, and Scallops
For the Salad


Instructions Checklist
  • Make the salad: In a large bowl, whisk to combine oil, vinegar, mustard, salt, and pepper. Add pepper cress, pea shoots, flowers, and beets, but do not toss to coat. Set aside.

  • Prepare the peas and radishes: Bring a small saucepan of water to a boil. Add peas, and blanch for 2 minutes. With a slotted spoon, remove from pot, and set aside. Blanch radishes for 2 minutes, and add to snap peas. Melt 2 tablespoons of butter in a medium skillet over medium heat. Add 1 tablespoon water, the peas, and radishes. Cook until water evaporates and butter coats vegetables, about 2 1/2 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.

  • Meanwhile, cook the scallops: Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Season scallops with salt. Working in batches if necessary so as not to crowd pan, sear scallops until golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Transfer to a platter to keep warm. Season second side with salt and pepper. To the hot pan, add remaining 2 tablespoons butter and the orange zest and juice. Cook until butter is melted and flavors are combined, about 1 minute. Pour sauce over scallops.

  • Toss the salad. Arrange scallops, salad, and sauteed vegetables on dinner plates. Garnish with chive flowers, if desired. Serve immediately.
