Squid and Scallops In The Green

From Dorothy McNett's recipes at www.dorothymcnett.com.

1 squid steak (fresh and local)
4 sea scallops (fresh and local)
herbed sea salt
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1/2 shallot diced or 1 green onion, slivered
1-2 tablespoons white wine or sherry
fresh mixed greens or torn butter lettuce
few sprinkles of black sea salt
black or green olives for a delicious garnish

Sprinkle the steak and scallops with salt and paprika. In heavy bottomed skillet gently heat the oil 1-2 minutes to get it hot but not smoking. Cook the onion in the oil about 30-40 seconds and then put the squid steak in the center of the pan and the scallops around it. Cook about 1 minute. Turn steak and scallops over. Cook another 1-2 minutes, removing the squid first and placing on a plate. When scallops are done (do not overcook!), scoot them aside and pour in the wine. Using a spatula stir about 30-40 seconds, until wine has reduced a bit and you have scraped up all of the nice flavors into the juices. Arrange greens on a platter, place squid steak in the center, arrange the scallops around it, drizzle with pan juices, salt and olives.
