  • Marinate in Why not Take Olive Me & Herb Marinade for at least 2 hours in the refrigerator.
  • On a hot flat griddle or large sauté pan, cook Scallops and Prawns on their skewers until golden brown, approximately 2-3 minutes per side.
  • In a mixing bowl, place salad greens, cashews, tomatoes, avocado and Feta, and toss with Duke’s Sinful Citrus Vinaigrette. Top with Scallops and Prawns Skewer.

Sinful Citrus Vinaigrette

  • Place egg in food processor and blend for 2 minutes until frothy. While mixing, blend in garlic and basil until smooth. Add salt and pepper. In a thin, constant stream, slowly add olive oil (too fast and the dressing will separate). Add lemon juice and mix just until smooth. This dressing can be prepared up to 2 days ahead of time and stored in the refrigerator.
