Step 1: Prepare salad

Fill a medium pot with water and bring to a boil. Add snow peas to boiling water and cook for 2 min., then drain and rinse with cold water to stop the cooking process. Let snow peas drain thoroughly while you prepare the dressing. Whisk together vinegar, honey, and Salt & Pepper Tableside Seasoning. Toss snow peas with dressing and fold in radish slices. Set aside while you cook the scallops.

Step 2: Prepare scallops

Pat scallops dry with paper towels and sprinkle with Saffron Salt and Fine Black Malabar Pepper. Heat oil in a wide skillet over medium-high heat until oil is hot and begins to shimmer. Add scallops to pan and let cook for 2 to 3 min. per side, or until golden brown. Scallops should release from the pan easily so if you try to turn them and they stick, let them cook for 30 more seconds before trying again. Cook in batches to avoid overcrowding the pan. Serve scallops warm with snow pea salad.
