Caribbean Scallop Salad

Ready for a little taste of the Caribbean? With a little creativity, there never has to be a dull moment with your dinners. This salad offers a hearty dose of nutrition with a taste that is sure to satisfy.

While shrimp is the most commonly used seafood when preparing salads, this recipe calls for scallops, which are also a great source of protein at 21 grams per serving.

The recipe brings in the sweet flavor of pineapple with the tangy flavor of lime for a taste sensation that is unlike any other. The pineapple also contains important digestive enzymes, so this is a great salad for those who may often suffer from digestive issues.

The spinach it calls for boasts a number of nutrients including vitamin K, vitamin E, folate, iron, and calcium. Finally, the avocado rounds out the dish, adding some unsaturated fat content and even more vitamin E to help promote healthy skin, hair, and nails.

Note that you can adjust the amount of lime juice to taste if desired.

INGREDIENTS


  • 10 oz. scallops
  • ½ tbsp. red pepper and garlic spice
  • 4 slices pineapple
  • 4 cups spinach leaves
  • ¼ cup diced avocado
