  1. In a small bowl, stir together the garlic, parsley, celery leaves, salt, and corn oil; set aside. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil over high heat. Pour in the peas, and return to a boil. Stir in the scallops, and boil for 3 minutes, then add the shrimp and continue cooking for 1 1/2 minutes more. Drain well, then cool in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
  2. Once the seafood has cooled, toss it with the garlic dressing until coated. Refrigerate overnight before serving.

I made this tonight for dinner for myself and it is very flavorful! The only changes I made were that I had jumbo scallops that I halved and I sauteed the scallops, shrimp and peas in a tiny bit of butter and olive oil. Then just did the rest of the recipe as stated. Very yummy!


LOVED THIS! If I could of given more stars I would have. Surprisingly delicious with only (8) ingredients! Love the fresh flavor of the celery leaves with the richness of the garlic-oil. I preferred SEARING the scallops in a tsp. of the set-aside garlic/oil (I used a light EVOO), used the shrimp to deglaze pan (the little bit of juice in the shrimp worked nicely for deglazing)and then mixed all. I enjoyed it warm, as well as chilled ...maybe even a little more. Will be making this for company soon! Thank you Lillian for sharing this great recipe!


This was excellent with a few alterations. I saute' the Bay scallops instead in 1 Tbsp. Butter and 1 Tbsp. Extra Virgin Olive Oil combined. The Jumbo Shrimp I used were pre-cooked and I used 1/2 cup Olive Oil instead of Corn Oil and added Black Pepper, Oregano and 1/4 cup sliced Black Olives. I served this for my Appetizer/Cocktail Party and my company being garlic lovers absolutely was astounded by the flavor combination and loved it. This is definitely a keeper and it is a nice refreshing change for a summer salad :-)
