Level: Easy


Prep: 15 mins

Cook: 3 mins

Yields: 6 Servings

    Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 lb large shrimp (16-20 ct)
  • 1 1/2 lb dry packed large sea scallops
  • 1 c Stonyfield Organic Whole Milk Plain Yogurt
  • 2 t grainy (mustard)
  • 1 t garlic (minced)
  • 1 T scallion green end (finely chopped)
  • 1 T parsley leaves (washed and coarsely chopped)
  • 1 t capers (chopped)
  • 1/2 t kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper

directions

Step 1

Peel and devein shrimp, leaving tail on.

Step 2

To clean scallops you need to remove the 'foot' or the narrow band attached to one side of the scallop.

Step 3

Stir yogurt, mustard, garlic, scallions, parsley, capers, salt and pepper together.

Step 4

Use approximately half to marinate the seafood.

Step 5

Heat sauté pan or skillet over medium high burner and when hot add 1-2 tb oil.

Step 6

Remove seafood from marinade and add to hot pan in a single layer.

Step 7

Allow heat to recover 1-2 minutes and place in hot oven to roast 3-4 minutes longer until shrimp are firm but succulent and scallops feel set to the touch (for fish fillet a good rule of thumb is for every inch of thickness roast for 6-8 minutes).

Step 8

Drizzle remaining sauce over seafood on plate and serve.
