Ingredients
  • Salad Dressing:
  • 2 teaspoons sherry vinegar
  • 4 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1/2 lemon, juiced
  • 1/2 teaspoon toasted sesame seeds
  • Guinness Soaked Tuna:
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup salt
  • 1 1/4 cups Guinness
  • 3 sea scallops
  • 3 oysters
  • 1 (8 by 3/4 by 2-inch) piece blue fin tuna
  • 4 cups favorite salad greens, cleaned
Directions

To make the dressing, combine the sherry vinegar, olive oil, sesame oil, lemon juice, and sesame seeds into a jar, shake well, and place aside.

To make the Guinness soaked tuna, first combine the sugar, salt, and Guinness to make a brine. Stir well, until the sugar and salt are dissolved. Add the tuna and brine for 12 hours in the refrigerator. Remove tuna, wash under cold water, and dry with a clean towel. Slice 4-inch long and 1/4-inch thick ribbons off the tuna and wrap 1 around each of the scallops and oysters. Gently sear the oysters and scallops in a very hot fry pan, until the tuna cooks on the outside and the scallops and oysters just lose their translucence. Then remove from heat.

Place 3 scallops on a plate. Toss the oysters with salad greens and 2 teaspoons of the dressing, and place in between the scallops. Drizzle extra dressing around the plate and serve.
