Sesame Chili Dressing

Start Cooking

For the “Scallops”

  1. Dry hearts of palm and cut into one-inch cylinder shaped pieces.

  2. Sprinkle with salt, black pepper, and some garlic powder.

  3. In a hot skillet or frying pan with sear each side in oil for one minute. Look for that char color, but be careful not to burn.

For the Dressing

  1. In a small saucepot, bring sesame oil to a heavy simmer.

  2. Using a metal strainer, soak dried red chili flakes for three to four minutes. Pull out the strainer with the chili flakes and let oil cool.

  3. Add soy sauce to your cooled oil and mix. Season with minced garlic, if desired.

    The mock scallops are resting on a type of organically grown beet called "candy striped beet".

    In the picture, he platted it on top of a beet. Maybe you can add it to a salad. or you can plate in on a cracker or a chip and serve as an appetizer. You could also try sautees polenta rounds and serving it on that with some guacamole on top. You can have fun with it and serve it however you'd like!
