2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use


Make the cucumber salad

  • Peel the cucumber, if desired; thinly slice the cucumber.
  • Thinly slice the radishes.

In a medium bowl, stir together the honey-lime vinaigrette base and 2 tablespoons [¼ cup] oil. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Add the cucumber, radishes, carrots, and sesame seeds and stir to coat. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Let stand, stirring occasionally, while you prepare the shellfish. 


Prep the shellfish

  • Rinse and drain the shellfish. Pat dry on a paper-towel-lined plate. 
  • Crack the egg into a shallow bowl and season lightly with salt and pepper. Lightly beat with a fork until just blended.
  • On a plate or shallow bowl, combine the coconut and granulated garlic and season lightly with salt and pepper. Spread in an even layer.

Working with a few shellfish at a time, dip the shellfish into the egg, turning to coat; let the excess drip off. Gently press the shellfish into the coconut mixture, coating all sides; shake off any excess. 


Cook the shellfish

In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 2 tablespoons [¼ cup] oil until hot but not smoking. Add the shellfish in a single layer and cook, turning once, until crisp, golden brown, and cooked through, 1 to 2 minutes per side for regular shrimp, 2 to 3 minutes per side for jumbo shrimp or scallops. Transfer to a paper-towel-lined plate. 


Transfer the cucumber salad and shellfish to individual plates. If using the spicy pineapple-ginger mayo, stir to recombine and serve on the side.
