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

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
