Scallop And Roasted Vegetable Salad

The secret of searing scallops with a perfectly golden brown crust, is frying them with butter. But since this is a dairy free scallop salad, I used some unflavored oil instead, and baked them in the oven. Frying results in the production of damaged, free-radical-laden fats in the fish as well as the frying oil. 

Scallop And Roasted Vegetable Salad

Scallops, in addition to their delectable taste, contain a variety of nutrients: 4 oz (113 grams) provides 102 % (DV) – Vitamin B12, 90% – Iodine, 47% – protein, 45% – selenium, 16% – zinc, 10% – magnesium.  They are low in calories and provide a tremendous energy source. What I like is that you can make a meal out of this scallops salad and it’s going to keep you full and satisfied.

Dressing

As for the dressing, I decided to keep it simple. I used hemp oil, salt and pepper, no dairy, gluten, sugar or nuts, but you can add some lemon juice or apple cider vinegar if you prefer some sourness. I opted for hemp oil due to its health benefits.

The oil’s fatty acids are believed to affect immune responses in the body which helps to promote healing. This is also likely due to the oil’s perfect balance of omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids. Don’t use it as a cooking oil, it will start to smoke, change flavor and loose all it’s benefits.
