“I saw an ad advertising dinner plates and it had the classic dish of diver scallops and shrimp. I was immediately inspired to use that classic combo and make it a "Surf N' Turf" dish by combining with with either beef, pork, or chicken and that's how this item was born. Let me know what you think!”

  1. In a saute' pan cook chorizo until it begins to get firm.
  2. Add remaining vegetables and black beans. Use some of the bean liquid to thin out the mixture. You want to have a pourable consistency. This should take about 5 minutes.
  3. Add mango puree and asian chili paste.
  4. In a separate pan, melt butter, then add scallops. Do not shake pan. The scallops must develop a crust before turning over. About 2-3 minutes.
  5. Add shrimp. When it's time to turn the scallops over, it'll be time for the shrimp to be turned as well. You want the shrimp to be orange with slight charring.
  6. Carefully add the wine. It should sizzle, then bubble and mix with the flavors of the scallops and shrimp.
  7. Press on scallops to check doneness. It should be slightly resistant.
