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

Wash produce before use


Prep and cook the sunchokes

  • Scrub the sunchokes under cold water. Cut the sunchokes into ¼-inch-thick rounds.

In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 teaspoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the sunchokes, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender and lightly browned, 10 to 12 minutes. Transfer to a plate. Do not clean the pan. Meanwhile, start preparing the rest of the meal.


Prep the remaining ingredients

  • Using the bottom of a bowl or cup, lightly crush the hazelnuts.
  • Strip the sage leaves from the stems and coarsely chop enough to measure 1 tablespoon [2 TBL]. Save any remaining sage for another use.
  • Core and thinly slice the pear.

In a large bowl, toss together the pear and sherry-mustard blend; season to taste with salt and pepper. 


Prep and cook the shellfish

  • Rinse and drain the shellfish. Pat dry on a paper-towel-lined plate. Season lightly with salt and pepper.

In the same pan used for the sunchokes, warm 1 to 2 teaspoons oil over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. 


For shrimp:

Add the shrimp and cook, turning once, until firm and cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes per side.


For scallops:

Add the scallops and cook without turning until golden brown on one side and starting to turn opaque, 2 to 4 minutes. Turn and continue cooking for about 30 seconds for translucent or 1 to 2 minutes for opaque. 


Transfer the shellfish to a plate and cover to keep warm. Do not clean the pan.


Finish the salad

To the bowl with the pear, add the arugula and toss to combine; season to taste with salt and pepper.


Make the sage brown butter

In the same pan used for the shellfish, melt the butter over medium heat until fragrant and starting to turn golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from the heat, stir in the hazelnuts and sage, and season with salt and pepper, scraping up any browned bits from the bottom of the pan, until the nuts and sage are fragrant, about 1 minute. Add the shellfish and sunchokes and stir to incorporate. Season to taste with salt and pepper.


Transfer the arugula salad to individual plates and top with the shellfish and sunchokes. Drizzle with any remaining brown butter from the pan and serve.
