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

Wash produce before use


Prep your protein

  • Steak, chicken, or pork strips: Cut a small corner from the packaging and drain off any excess liquid. Transfer the meat to a plate; pat dry with a paper towel. Season lightly with salt and pepper.
  • Shrimp or scallops: Rinse and drain the shrimp or scallops. Pat dry on a paper-towel-lined plate. Season lightly with salt and pepper.
  • Plant-based chicken: Pat the plant-based chicken dry with a paper towel; season lightly with salt and pepper.


Cook your protein

In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add your protein and cook, stirring occasionally, until lightly browned and just cooked through, 4 to 6 minutes for jumbo shrimp, scallops, steak, pork, or plant-based chicken, and 6 to 8 minutes for chicken. Transfer to a plate. Do not clean the pan. While your protein is cooking, prepare the vegetables. 


Prep and cook the vegetables

  • Cut the zucchini in half lengthwise, then crosswise into ½-inch-thick half-moons.
  • Scrub or peel the carrot and trim the ends; cut the carrot on the diagonal into ¼-inch-thick slices.

In the same pan used for your protein, warm 2 to 3 teaspoons oil over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Add the zucchini and carrot, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until crisp-tender, 2 to 4 minutes. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper. Meanwhile, prepare the arugula and finish the romesco.


Dress the arugula; finish the romesco

In a medium bowl, toss together the arugula, 2 teaspoons [4 tsp] sherry vinegar, and 1 to 2 teaspoons oil. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

In a small bowl, stir together the romesco, remaining sherry vinegar, and 1 teaspoon [2 tsp] oil. 


Spread the romesco on individual plates, top with the vegetables, and sprinkle with the pumpkin seed dukkah. Top with your protein and serve with the arugula.
