Wash produce before use


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. In a medium bowl, toss the shrimp with the Southwestern spice blend and season lightly with salt and pepper.
In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 tablespoon oil until hot but not smoking. 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.

For the scallops:
  • Pat the scallops dry with a paper towel. In a medium bowl, toss the scallops with the Southwestern spice blend and season lightly with salt and pepper.
In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 2 to 3 teaspoons oil until hot but not smoking. 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.

While the shellfish cooks, start preparing the remaining ingredients.


Prep the remaining ingredients; assemble the salad

  • Trim the root end from the romaine heart; coarsely chop the leaves.
  • Remove the stem, ribs, and seeds from the bell pepper; cut the pepper into ½-inch pieces.
  • Rinse the black beans.
  • Cut the tomatoes in half.
In a large bowl, stir together the honey-lime vinaigrette base and 2 tablespoons [¼ cup] oil; season to taste with salt and pepper. Add the romaine, bell pepper, beans, tomatoes, and olives and toss to combine; season to taste with salt and pepper.


Transfer the salad to individual bowls, top with the shellfish and guacamole, and serve.
