Instructions

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

Wash produce before use

1

Make the radish relish

  • Cut the radishes in half, then cut the halves into thin half-moons.
  • Strip the parsley leaves from the stems; coarsely chop the leaves.
  • Juice the lemon. [Juice 1 lemon; save the remaining lemon.]
In a small bowl, stir together the radishes, parsley, 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] lemon juice, and 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] oil. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Let stand while you prepare the rest of the meal.

2

Prep and cook the chard

  • Strip the chard leaves from the stems; coarsely chop the leaves and stems, keeping them separate.
In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 teaspoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the chard stems, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until they begin to soften and brown, 2 to 4 minutes. Working in batches if needed, stir in the chard leaves and cook until just wilted, 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper. Wipe out the pan.
While the chard cooks, prepare the shellfish.

Prep and cook the shellfish

For the shrimp or jumbo shrimp:
  • Rinse the shrimp, then drain on a paper-towel-lined plate and pat dry. Transfer the shrimp to a large bowl; season lightly with salt and pepper and as much Urfa chile as you like and toss to coat.
In the same pan used for the chard, warm 1 tablespoon oil over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Working in batches if needed, add the shrimp and cook, turning once, until firm and cooked through, 1 to 2 minutes per side for regular shrimp, 2 to 3 minutes per side for jumbo shrimp. Transfer to a plate. Add more oil between batches if needed.
While the shrimp cook, prepare the ajo blanco sauce.

For the scallops:
  • Pat the scallops dry with a paper towel. Transfer the scallops to a large bowl; season lightly with salt and pepper and as much Urfa chile as you like and toss to coat.
In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 2 to 3 teaspoons oil until hot but not smoking. Working in batches if needed, 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 to a plate. Add more oil between batches if needed.
While the scallops cook, prepare the ajo blanco sauce.

Warm the ajo blanco sauce

In a small sauce pot over medium heat, combine the ajo blanco sauce base and sherry vinegar and season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until warmed through, 2 to 3 minutes. Divide the sauce between 2 [4] individual plates.

Serve

Place the chard on top of the ajo blanco sauce on the plates. Spoon on the shellfish, top with the radish relish, and serve.
