YES!! I have been waiting for that sunshine to comeback. Here is a re-created dish that I ate at the #Merroir this past Sunday (because it was so tasty, light & just darn good). RE-CREATED FROM MY VISIT AT THE MERROIR (MERWA-ESSENCE OF THE SEA) PAN SEARED SCALLOPS ATOP A COOL BLACK EYED PEA SALAD-TAPAS STYLE:


  • 1 can of drained black eyed peas
  • 2 tablespoons of minced garlic (reserve one for searing your scallops in our Herbs de Provence Olive Oil)
  • ½ red onion
  • 1 Roma tomato
  • 1 cucumber
  • 1 strip of pork belly diced fine
  • Chopped cilantro or parsley to taste
  • Sea salt and cracked black pepper

Toss all together with our Persian lime olive oil & Honey Ginger Balsamic vinegar
Let marinade for one hr. or more (over- night is always best).
Top your cool salad with fresh pan seared scallops 3-4 to a plate. ENJOY!!!
