3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons unsweetened orange juice
1 tablespoon peeled, minced gingerroot
1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
2 teaspoons olive oil
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1 pound sea scallops
1/2 pound fresh asparagus spears
Vegetable cooking spray
1 teaspoon olive oil
6 cups mixed baby salad greens
2 medium oranges, peeled and sectioned
Orange zest (optional)
Freshly ground pepper (optional)


Combine first 5 ingredients in a jar. Cover tightly, and shake vigorously.

Pour 1/2 cup orange juice mixture into a heavy-duty, zip-top plastic bag. Set remaining juice mixture aside. Add scallops to bag; seal bag, and shake until scallops are well coated. Marinate in refrigerator 30 minutes, turning bag occasionally.

Snap off tough ends of asparagus. Remove scales from stalks with a knife or vegetable peeler, if desired. Cut asparagus into 2-inch pieces. Set aside.

Remove scallops from marinade, discarding marinade. Coat a 10-inch cast-iron skillet with cooking spray; add 1 teaspoon oil. Place over medium-high heat until hot. Add scallops, and cook 5 minutes or until browned, turning once. Remove scallops from skillet; keep warm. Add asparagus to skillet; saute until crisp-tender.

To serve, place 1 1/2 cups greens on each of 4 plates. Arrange scallops, asparagus, and orange sections evenly over greens.

Pour remaining orange juice mixture through a wire-mesh strainer. Discard garlic and gingerroot remaining in strainer. Drizzle 2 tablespoons orange juice mixture over each salad. If desired, sprinkle with orange zest and pepper.
