Time for another easy dinner! As always preheat for cooking method of choice. I used my grill, nice and hot coals are white
The black bean salsa is super simple. Take everything from the black beans down, chop or measure and add to a bowl
For the black beans, drain and rinse them well. This will remove almost all of the added sodium from packaging
Now just let them hang out and drain
Picture of most of the veg
Chop peppers, add to bowl
Cucumber, easy way to seed it is cut in half and use a spoon to dig it out
Only took a few seconds
You can peel or or leave it with the skin, just wanted to show I prepped mine.
Add it to the bowl, see the trend! Super simple
I used the white and light green parts of the green onion. Rinsed of any dirt.
Sliced and add it to the bowl
The parsley, throw a quick chop on it and add it to the bowl
The cherry tomatoes, sliced and you guessed it, added to the bowl
A good chop on the dill and add it to the bowl
I only used half the onion, take half of the onion paper skin and all and...
Right on the grill! It adds a nice chat and flavor to the dish. ( side note you can also add corn to this and grill it the same way as the onion)
Flip it once or twice... Cooking for 5 or so minutes don't worry if it blackens or smokes a bit.
Nice and charred. Also I love these gloves I can put my hand on the grill pretty much and not feel the heat. Great when cooking kabobs
Peel the burnt skin off the onion and chop.. Then of course add it to the bowl
Juice the whole lemon into the bowl
The balsamic, into the bowl I didn't take a pic bit also add the honey, a teaspoon at a time and stir, then taste for your level of sweet desired.
The red pepper flakes for a bit of kick
Everyone is at the party. Add the olive oil as well and stir, taste, say yum and put in the fridge until you eat.
Time for the proteins, fish and scallops rinse and dry both of them well.
Check for any bones and portion
Like so, season both sides I used salt, pepper, fish seasoning (such as old bay) and I used a garlic herb seasoning I had
The scallops! Beautiful pieces of deliciousness! These will be simple...
Salt and pepper, drizzle with olive oil
On the grill, scallops 2-2.5 minutes a side and fish, 4-5 minutes a side. Flip once it will release fairly easy once it's ready to flip.
Plate salsa, fish on top and scallops on side! Enjoy. And check my other guides and Facebook page. The love of culinary creations. Thanks, and please ask questions and leave feedback!
